Abstract: Vegetable oils and their methyl/ethyl esters are alternative renewable fuels for compression ignition engines. Different kinds of vegetable oils and their methyl/ethyl esters have been tested in diesel engines. However, tobacco seed oil and tobacco seed oil methyl ester have not been tested in diesel engines, yet. Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum Linn.) seed oil is a non-edible vegetable oil and a by-product of tobacco leaves production. In a study (conducted at Pamukkale University, Mechanical Engineering Department, Camli, Denizli, Turkey), the oil extraction process from tobacco seed and the transesterification process for biodiesel production were examined. Tobacco seed oil methyl ester has been produced and tested in a diesel engine as an alternative diesel fuel. The results conclude that tobacco seed oil methyl ester can be partially (up to 25-35%) substituted for the diesel fuel at most operating conditions in terms of performance parameters and emissions without any engine modification and preheating of the blends [Usta, Biomass Bioenergy, 2005, 28(1), 77-86].
