Abstract: Depletion of fossil fuels and increase of emissions have alarmed the researchers to think seriously on alternative fuels in order to maintain and provide sustainable development. Vegetable oils have long been considered as attractive alternative fuels to the conventional diesel fuel. Use of vegetable oils provides almost same power output with higher fuel consumption resulting into lower brake thermal efficiency when compared to conventional diesel. Some of such alternative fuels are Cottonseed, Jatropa, Linseed, Rapeseed Sesame etc..,that are available, out of which, the heating value of Jatropa vegetable oil is nearer to conventional diesel. Hence, Jatropa based straight vegetable oil (SVO) is considered as pilot fuel for this experimental work. But the viscous and dense nature of SVO, makes coarser injection causing poor atomization and later vaporization resulted in deterioration of its combustion process. As literature suggested, use of pre-heated straight vegetable oil at 90oC will have lower viscosity as prescribed in ASTM limits for CI fuels, hence this temperature is considered to continue with pre-heated straight vegetable oil at 90o C (PHSVO 90) as a pilot fuel. newline
