In this investigation is to extract the biodiesel from waste cooking oil through transesterification and to assess the performance and emission characteristics of the diesel engine. In this present work, waste cooking oil methyl ester is extracted and blends with diesel to test for different varying load conditions in low heat rejection (LHR) with and without ceramic Al2TiO5 coating on piston, cylinder head and liner. Likewise, various parameters also tested such as brake thermal efficiency (BTH), brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), emission of hydro carbons, oxides of nitrogen gases, and carbon monoxides. These tests are carried out with 3 different blends B10, B20, &B30 at different load conditions. Finally, the result shows that the performance of diesel engine with biodiesel was satisfactory increased when compared with diesel.
