Background: Inadequate reserve of fuel energy along with environmental concerns encompass benefits in the augment of alternative energy for internal combustion (IC) engines. Biomass as type of cashew nut shell characterizes fresh power basis plus copious resource for power.

Objectives: The bio-fuel be resultant as of cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL) and intermingle through diesel be capable substitute energy on behalf of standard engine. As per current research CNSO and diesel mingles are worn to lope the vertical, four strokes, water cooled diesel engine.

Methods: The tests were performed for a range of CNSL and diesel mingles specifically B20, B40, B60, B80 and B100. Engine loads be varied as of 0 to 100% and engine rapidity is sustained at 1500 rpm. Thus blends consequences are contrast with precise diesel process.

Conclusions: The outcomes confirmed about brake thermal efficiency (BTE) dropped off with raise in CNSL concentration. The brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) augmented with raise in CNSL Concentration. The exhaust emissions of HC, CO and exhaust gas temperature amplified with raising the CNSL deliberation. The NOx release decreased with higher blends of CNSL.
