Globally the demand for diesel and petrol is alarming due to speedy depletion of fossil fuel and hyper increase of automobiles in the current years. It results in seeking an alternate for fuel that led to many findings of alternative fuels. The previous researchers have exposed the utility of vegetable oils for engines as an alternative for diesel fuel. However, there is a constraint in using vegetable oils in diesel engines due to their high viscosity and low volatility. In this study, raw cotton seed oil is converted into biodiesel (Methyl Ester of Cotton Seed Oil) through transesterification process and finds the impact of injection pressures (190, 200, 210, 220 and 230 bar) and injection timings (21o, 23o and 25o bTDC) on combustion, performance and emission parameters of optimized blend (B25) of cotton seed oil biodiesel with diesel in a single cylinder diesel engine. From the investigation, it is found that in a diesel engine the optimum injection pressure is 200 bar and injection timing is 23o bTDC for the optimized blend of B25 cotton seed oil biodiesel and could be used as an alternative fuel with no modification of the diesel engine.
