Abstract: This study presents effects of diethyl ether and ethanol as additives to biodiesel (neem oil methyl ester) on the performance and emission characteristics of a diesel engine at different loads and constant engine speed. Compared with biodiesel, slightly lower brake specific energy consumption for diethyl ether and ethanol blended biodiesel fuels was observed. At higher engine loads, CO and smoke emissions were found significantly lower with all blends [BD-1 (5% diethyl ether, 95% biodiesel), BD-2 (10% diethyl ether, 90% biodiesel), BE-1 (5% ethanol, 95% biodiesel) and BE-2 (10% ethanol, 90% biodiesel)] compared to biodiesel, but HC and NOx emissions were found higher.
