Abstract
Performance and emission characteristics unmodified diesel engines operating on different alternative fuels with smaller blend proportions are comparable with pure diesel operation. But with increased blend proportions due to the associated problems of vegetable oils like high viscosity and low volatility pollution levels increase which however is accompanied by operating and durability problems with the long term usage of engine. This paper discusses the necessary modifications required to overcome the problems associated with unmodified diesel engines like Low heat rejection (LHR),dual fuel mode of operation, Turbocharged engines and EGR engines (exhaust gas r...
