Abstract: The present rate of consumption of gasoline would lead to severe shortage of it within next few decades. An urgency of finding an alternative fuel in its place has led to several researches around the world. In this study oil obtained from pyrolysis of waste tire was studied upon for its suitability to be used with diesel fuel. A study was carried out to evaluate the use of various tire pyrolysis oil (TPO) blends with diesel fuel. Performance and emission characteristics of TPO blends with diesel on a 4 cylinder direct injection engine are presented in this study. In the initial stage the test were conducted on four stroke single cylinder diesel engine by using diesel and base line data was generated .A constant speed off 1500rpm was maintained throughout the experiment. Then commercially available TPO was blended with diesel fuel at the volumetric ratios of 5 %( D5), 10% (D10) and15 %( D15).The results showed that brake thermal efficiency of the engine was maximum for D10 blend than diesel at same loading conditions. The BSFC was also found to be less for D10 blend compared to diesel. There was no significant increase in exhaust gas temperature for the blends as compared to diesel.
