The present work is to compare the properties, performance, combustion and emission characteristics of methyl ester of thevetia peruviana seed oil with other methyl esters of vegetable oils namely jatropha, pungamia, mahua, neem, corn, palm, cotton, mustard, sunflower and rice bran oils at a blend ratio of 1:5 (B20).
Hence, it is concluded that blend of 20% methyl ester of thevetia peruviana seed oil and 80% diesel could be used as a fuel for diesel engine for better performance with less emission when compared to other methyl esters considered in this study.
