Depletion of fossil fuels, increasing fuels prices and environmental considerations have encouraged engineers and scientists to develop alternative fuels and improve the efficiencies of energy systems. Nano?uids are a new class of solid-liquid composite materials consisting of nano-sized solid particles dispersed in any base ?uid [1]. This study deals with an experimental work that aims to examine the effects of nano additive added to diesel fuels. Nano diesel fuels were prepared by adding barium oxide nano additive. These nano additives were blended with diesel fuel in varying mass fractions by the means of a mechanical homogenizer and an ultrasonicator. Physicochemical properties of nanodiesels were measured and compared with neat diesel fuel. The effects of the additive nano additive on the engine performance and emissions were also investigated. The engine test results indicated that the nanodiesel in terms of engine performance efficiency and environmentally friendly emissions could be recognized as the potential candidates in diesel engines.
