Abstract: The depletion of fossil fuel and the environmental deterioration are the 2 main problems which is faced by the world in recent days. Only limited amount of stocks can provide the fossil fuel based fuels. The various derivatives of the vegetable oils have been identified as the straight vegetative oils which are used in diesel engines. These have the characteristics of high viscosity, lesser volatility level and very low cold flow properties. The CNSL oil was chosen and mixed with several additives and the quality and emission characteristics were described and charted in this paper. Based on the experimental work done the results were compared. The experiments show that the lower blends can be used directly in the engine by which the overall consumption of diesel is reduced. Amongst all the different blends used such as B20,B15 and B10 the blend B20 was preferred showing improved performance in the engine compared to the different blends available. The experiment was done with the different additives such as DiEthylEther (DEE), Ethanol (EA), and Iso Butane(ISO)
