|Abstract:||Depleting supply of petroleum fuels has made it imperative to explore alternative sources. In Malaysia Palm oil has been tested as petroleum substitute for running buses. In other reports, vegetable oils such as coconut oil, soybean, sunflower, peanut and linseed have been tried for diesel substitution. Recently, studies have been made to convert vegetable oil to other forms through esterification. Commercial production of coconut methyl ester (CME) was done for more than a decade ago.|
