As the population is increasing continuously and there by the vehicles are also increasing so to overcome problems of more consumption of fossil fuels and more emissions of unburnt hydrocarbons, carbon mono oxide and particulate matter, there is a need of alternative fuels that will reduce the consumption of fossil fuels and harmful emissions . here we are making observations on blending of esterified bio diesel into pure diesel. Due to having more demand of edible oil in food industries we are using a one of nonedible oils and that is mahua oil . Agricultural machinery and commercial transportation are highly dominated by diesel engines because great efficiency because it has great efficiency and ease of operation .the production of automotive vehicle is increasing at the high rate because of the rapid industrialization the economy of india and china is growing very fast and the same time and at the same time this growth is affecting the environment badly.india and china are the hub for fossil oil consumption and this consumption contributes to global warming .
