Abstract: Now a days there is an Increasing rate of pollution which cause the environmental as well as human hazards. Pollutions are mostly caused from two main areas one is from industrial areas and another one is automobiles. In recent technologies, researchers have found various alternative methods to reduce emission, we taken an initiative to introduce water with alcohol in precise measure to increase performance and reduction of emission in all standards of automobile. Reduction of exhaust emission is attained by adding a secondary fuel along with the SI engine primary fuel. Water and methanol mixture is a secondary fuel injected into the combustion chamber with the support of an injector. An inlet manifold is modified to fix the injector and the flow of H2O (water) and CH3OH (methanol) mixture and injection timing is controlled by electronic control unit (ECU). By the experimental investigation of this project, we had studied that the emission from the engine is reduced, the fuel consumption of the vehicle is decreases, and it has improve the inter-cooling capacity of engine and efficiency of the engine improved.
