Abstract: Vegetable oils are the only fuels, can be substituted as alternative to overcome the shortage in developing countries. Using non-edible oil like crude jatropha as alternative, waste land can be effectively cultivated and employment can be improved. Experiments were Initiated on semi adiabatic diesel engine with super charging air through the intake manifold using crude jatropha oil with varied injection pressure and varied injection timing to study the performance of the engine. Tests were also conducted using diesel fuel in diesel engine and engine with high grade heat rejection combustion chamber at recommended injection timing at 270bTDC with super charging air using crude jatropha oil. Improvement in performance was found with super charging when comparing with natural aspiration.
Keywords: Vegetable oils, fuels, crude jatropha oil, semi adiabatic diesel engine.
