Abstract
Biofuel with fuel additives has been gaining increased attention from engine researches in view of the energy crisis and increasing environmental problem. The present work is aimed at experimental investigation of 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate as an additive to the diesel biodiesel blends. Experiments were done on a 4 stroke single cylinder diesel engine by varying percentage by volume of 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate in diesel-biofuel blends. The effects of 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate on brake thermal efficiency, brake specific fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions were studied. It was found that brake thermal efficiency increased with increase in blend percentage with 5%, 10% and 15% 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate. Addition of 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate shows negative impact on brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) which decreased with blend percentage while it increases with 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate percentage. CO emissions decreased significantly while NOx emissions decreased marginally with the increase in 2 ethoxy ethyl acetate percentage.
