Abstract High viscosity and low volatility of vegetable oils compared to diesel lead to injector fouling and carbon deposits in engine cylinders while using them directly in engines. Biodiesel from the vegetable oils produced by a transesterification process could reduce viscosity considerably and improve the volatility. The properties of methyl esters produced from rubber seed oil, coconut oil, and palm kernel oil, which are locally available, especially in Kerala (India), are presented here… CONTINUE READING
