Abstract: Now a day’s world facing fuel problems because of increasing automobiles, power plants and factories, Increasing of this automobiles, power plants produce the more emissions like CO, HC and NOx. So we need alternative source, in this direction lot of work is going on to find out a suitable alternative to the diesel oil. Biodiesel is one of the main solutions to the global energy crisis. In this present work studied the performances and emission characteristics of Mahua Bio-diesel. The blends of Mahua methyl ester and Diesel in the proportion B10, B25, B50, B75and B100 were prepared analyzed and their performance and emissions characteristics compared with performance and emission characteristics of diesel. In engine performance and Emission test obtained the thermal efficiency, Mechanical efficiency, fuel consumption and indicated thermal efficiency for different blends and also obtain the emissions like CO, HC, NOx and CO2. The results are compared with pure diesel.
