Abstract: This study presents utilizing hybrid vegetable oil from Pongamia pinnata and Madhuca indica as an alternative diesel fuel. Raw pongamia oil and mahua oil were mixed (50:50) for preparing hybrid vegetable oil (HVO). A 20% blend of methyl ester of pongamia oil (MEOP), 20% blend of methyl ester of mahua oil (MEOM) and 20% blend of methyl ester of hybrid vegetable oil (MEHVO) with 80% of neat diesel were used as a fuel in diesel engine. A 20% blend of MEHVO with 80% of diesel gave competitive performance nearing diesel. In MEHVO blend, HC, CO is reduced, however CO2 and NOx emission is slightly increased when compared to pure diesel.
