The world is presently confronted with the twin crises of fossil fuel depletion and environmental degradation. Indiscriminate extraction and lavish consumption of fossil fuels have led to reduction in fossil resources. The search for an alternative fuel, which promises a harmonious correlation amongst sustainable development, energy conservation, management, efficiency and environmental preservation, has become highly pronounced in the present context. In this paper an attempt has been made to analyze the effect of thermal cracked carbon filtered fatty acid oil biodiesel (TCFAO) at different proportions with diesel (B20, B40, B60, B80 and B100) in a single cylinder, four stroke water-cooled, and diesel engine at 1500 rpm. The measured performance parameters are brake thermal efficiency, specific fuel consumption and engine exhaust emission of CO, HC, NOx and smoke density. Significant improvements in performance parameters and exhaust emissions have observed by the addition of TCFAO blends with diesel.
