One of the major problems in the contemporary world is pollution. The major contribution in this area comes from automobile emissions and industries. Diesel being one of the major fuels is also a major contributor in adding harmful pollutants into the atmosphere. In order to meet the stringent emission norms, the polluting components in the fuels need considerable reduction. Fuel characteristics play a major role in engine efficiency and engine emissions directly or indirectly. In this present work experiment was conducted on Kirloskar TV-1 engine (single cylinder, four stroke, constant speed, and water cooled diesel engine). The experiments were conducted by kriya bio additive in different ratios with diesel. The quantity of bio additives were increased gradually in the order of 1ml, 1.5ml, 2ml, 2.5, and 3ml respectively. Emission parameters such as HC, smoke density, NOx, and CO2, characteristic were determined for diesel and also for bio additive blends. Bio additives mixed with diesel in different ratios by volume based, it is noticed that the bio additive added diesel enhances the cetane number and reduced the emission.
