An experimental investigation was carried out to study the performance of a compression ignition (CI) engine fuelled with diesel with nanoparticles as an additive. Various blends were prepared by varying the nanoparticles i.e. cerium oxide and zinc oxide to study its operating characteristics of a single cylinder, constant speed CI engine. The engine test results showed that addition of nanoparticles i.e. cerium oxide and zinc oxide leads to an improvement in thermal efficiency compare to diesel operation at full load. However, the brake specific fuel consumption of zinc oxide 250ppm blend is nearly same as cerium oxide 40ppm and also zinc oxide 500ppm blend is nearly same as cerium oxide 80ppm at higher loads, and also it is observed that all the nanoparticle added blends are having less exhaust temperature than the diesel values at higher load. The smoke is decreased with the addition nano additives and also 40ppm of CeO2 as given the lowest rate of smoke.
