AbstractBecause of the accessibility of recoverable petroleum product holds and the natural issues brought about by the utilization of these non-renewable energy sources, much consideration has been given to the creation of biodiesel as a substitute for oil diesel. The two most normal kinds of biofuels are ethanol and biodiesel. Be that as it may since biodiesel comprises of vegetable oils and creature fats, it is to be expected that biodiesel crude materials can contend with long haul nourishment supplies. In this way, consideration has concentrated on oilseeds that produce non-eatable oil as a wellspring of biodiesel generation. In this undertaking, the citronella of plant species (Cymbopogon flexuous) is portrayed as another wellspring of unrefined petroleum for biodiesel generation. Lemongrass is local to India and tropical Asia. In India, it develops along the western ghats (Maharashtra, Kerala), Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, alongside the lower regions of the Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim slopes. This investigation analyzes the exhibition of citronella oil and its blends as fills for pressure start motors. The information in this way got was contrasted and the information got utilizing diesel. The motor worked very well without burning issues. We prescribe the utilization of citronella oil and its blends as elective powers for diesel motors. In any case, since biodiesel comprises of vegetable oils and creature fats, it is to be expected that biodiesel crude materials can contend with long haul nourishment supplies. Along these lines, consideration has concentrated on oilseeds that produce non-palatable oil as a wellspring of biodiesel generation. In this way, the commitment of non-sustenance oils as non-nourishment wellsprings of vegetable oils to biodiesel generation would be significant.
