Abstract: Transesterified soya bean oil (SBO) was tested for lubrication, wear, corrosion, thermal and oxidation properties. Biodegradable additives [palm oil methyl ester (POME), castor oil (CO)] were added to soya bean methyl ester (SBME) to improve wear resistance and oxidation stability. Various SBO formulations (crude SBO, SBME, SAE 40+SBME, SBME+POME+CO) were used as lubricants in diesel engines and sump oil temperature was measured and compared with SAE 40. SBOs showed physico-chemical properties similar to those of commercial mineral oil. Engine performance and lube oil temperature were not significantly different for SBO forms as compared to manufacturer’s recommended oil. SBME blends (SBME+CO+POME, SAE 40+SBME) were observed to be used as crankcase oils.
