Abstract: Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), used as biodiesel, degrade over time, mainly influenced by temperature, presence of light, metal, nature of the container and oxygen. Peroxide value and viscosity increases with increasing storage time of FAME samples. Use of antioxidants [3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (BHA), 2, 6-di-tert-butyl-4-methyl-phenol (BHT) and propyl gallate (PrG)] could significantly improve stability of FAME. Storage (1 y) period can be regarded as a more than realistic time span for commercial life of biodiesel.
