Two single cylinder diesel engines burning 3 vegetable oils, and their blends with diesel fuel, were evaluated and compared to engines burning a reference diesel fuel. Tests were conducted determining power output, fuel consumption, thermal efficiency and exhaust smoke. Using the 3 vegetable oils and their blends with the reference diesel fuel, maximum changes of 5%, 14%, 10%, and 40% were observed in power, fuel consumption by mass, thermal efficiency, and exhaust smoke, respectively
