Abstract: The paper investigated the effect of 1-hexanol fumigation in an engine performance using Moringa biodiesel blend. In this research, the biodiesel used is processed from Moringa Olifera seed. In this research tests were performed with the modification of a CI engine to carburet the hexanol into the intake manifold. Initially the experiment was conducted with diesel and Moringa biodiesel (MOME25), and then the test was conducted with various proportions of fumigated hexanol along with MOBD25. Results revealed that, the BTE was increased by 1.08% for MOBD25 with 10% n-hexanol fumigation compared with other diesel and other proportions of fumigations with MOBD25 blend. The NOx emission and smoke were diminished by 36% and 38% respectively for MOBD25 with 30% n-hexanol fumigation. It is concluded that 30% n-hexanol fumigation with MOBD25 blend drastically reduce the NOx emissions with the penalty of BTE.
