ABSTRACT. With the rapid growth in consumption of petroleum products in last 3 decades it has been a major concern to estimate the uses and also seeking for other alternate fuels, since we have very limited resource of petroleum product and their rapid consumption rate because of technological advancement. The situation arises where it is essential to look in for the some alternate source for transportation it’s a challenge as well as an opportunity in the research field develop such a fuel which may be environmental friendly and also can be used with the similar specification of transportation industry. In the present paper the sole concern is to introduce a cleaner alternate fuel which will certainly eliminate the dependency of conventional fuel (petrol, diesel etc.) and provides a cleaner environment. Bio-diesel prepared from the seeds of Jatropha has been tested in 4-cylinder engine and the engine performance and results have been analyzed to get the clear specification of an environmental friendly fuel.
