In this research work, by varying the load and speed with different biodiesel blend percentage the performance of the four stroke diesel engine was investigated. In this work jetpropha oil was used as raw material. The properties such as density, kinematic viscosity has been identified. The performance test was conducted at various load conditions 1,3,6 & 7.5 and speed in rpm 1560, 1538, 1516 & 1504 with different propositions such as B20%, B40%, B60% of Bio-Diesel blend with pure diesel and

From the result, it was revealed that addition of B20%, B40%, B60% of Bio-Diesel blend with pure diesel the Brake Power(B.P), Brake Thermal Efficiency(nR t.h R %) was increased. The test was conducted with 100% Bio-Diesel blend alone at that time Brake Power, Brake Thermal Efficiency was significantly increased.
