Bio-diesel production technology and its use as fuel for diesel engine is an area for researchers due to the depletion, increase in the price and the environmental issues using petroleum diesel. Transesteri fication is the most common method used for preparation of monoalkyl esters of vegetable oils and fats now called bio-diesel. Physical and chemical properties of biodiesel are comparable with that of diesel therefore bio-diesel can be an alternative to petroleum-based fuels. To improve the quality of the bio diesel based fuel additives can be added and also NOx emission can be effectively controlled by employing exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). In the present work, bio diesel is prepared from waste cooking oil (WCO) collected from various sources like restaurants, mess, catering services etc and Diethyl ether is added to it 15% w/w) as an additive. Experiments are conducted with diesel, WCO and blend of WCO and !%%DEE, these fuels for operating single cylinder diesel engine. Results indicate engine performance with bio diesel and 15% diethyl ether with 10% EGR is comparable with diesel.
