Abstract—In this study, Nitromethane (NM) and Nitroethane (NE) were used as nitrogenated additives to improve brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), combustion performance and reduce emission from diesel engine. The physico-chemical properties of the blended fuel and standard diesel were studied. Then exhaust emission of compression ignition (CI) engine have been evaluated experimentally for sole diesel, NM-Diesel and NE-Diesel fuel blends. In this section experimental study was carried out on ECE R-96 8- modes cycle. The addition of nitrogenated additives to the standard diesel fuel caused brake thermal efficiency (BTE) increased. The smoke emission decreased at the maximum torque speed (1500 rpm) rather than at the rated power speed (2200 rpm).

Index Terms—Diesel fuel, nitrogenated additives, oxygenatedadditives, BSFC.
