In this study, the performance and emission characteristics of a direct injection diesel engine using coconut oil biodiesel were investigated. For this aim, coconut oil was converted to its biodiesel via transesterification approach. Then, the effects of the biodiesel percentage in blend, engine load, and speed on brake power, brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC), nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), and particle matter (PM) have been considered. Fuel blends with various percentages of biodiesel (0%0 - %3%) at various engine speeds and loads were tested. The results indicated that blends of cocunut with diesel fuel provide admissible engine performance on the other side, emissions decreased so much.
