The present work investigates the emission and thermal performance of DI CI variable compression ratio engine using blends of biodiesel and standard diesel as a fuel at compression ratios of 15,16,17 and 18. The biodiesel derived from non edible Calophyllum Inophyllum linn oil is used on the engine. The blends of biodiesel and diesel used were B20, B40, B60, B80 and 100% biodiesel. At 18 CR the brake thermal efficiency of the engine operated with 100% biodiesel is 8.9% less than Diesel and the
