Around the world, initiatives are being taken to replace gasoline e and diesel fuel due to the impact of the fossil fuel crisis, increase in oil price, and the adoption of stringent emission norms. Many alternate fuels like Alcohols, Biodiesel, methanol, ethanol, LPG, CNG etc have been already commercialized in the transport sector. In this context, pyrolysis of solid waste is currently receiving renewed interest. Tests have been carried out to evaluate the performance analysis of a single cylinder direct injection diesel engine fueled with 10%, 15%, and 20% of tyre pyrolysis oil (TPO) blended with Diesel fuel (DF). The TPO was derived from waste automobile tyre through vacuum pyrolysis. Best suitable blend was found and pyrolysis oil was added in concentration of 10%,15% and 20%.It is observed that D85 P15 blend found less fuel consumption compared to D90 P10 and D80 P20. Ethanol was added in the concentration of 5%,10% and 15% to this D85 P15 blend. It was concluded that DP95 E5(95% of 85% pyrolysis oil-Diesel blend and 5% ethanol) found less fuel consumption and better brake thermal efficiency and can be used as an alternative fuel for Diesel engine without any engine modification.
