Abstract

Bio-diesel is produced using waste vegetable oil (WVO) to create a fuel that can be used in a diesel engine. This study’s objective is to find the optimal blend of bio-diesel and use this optimal blend to record data on engine performance under load. In this project tests will be performed to determine horsepower, torque, emissions, and the fuel efficiency of various blends of fuel. These tests will be done using a dynamometer to allow for real world load testing. A HATZ 1B20 engine will be used to determine fuel efficiency in the beginning phases. The performance of the blended biodiesel will hopefully be equal with standard petroleum diesel, if not better.
