There is a need to find out an alternate fuel rather than fossil fuel which are depleting in very faster rate and to meet the power crisis in the planet .For the bio diesel production, we can exploit in a long list of trees, shrubs and herbs. In such a way, the mixture of the bio diesels such as candlenut seed and soap nut oil which is used as a fuel for diesel engines. It is significantly comparable to pure diesel in which the results are obtained. So that, it has been experimentally investigated in the influences of blends on break power, consumption of specific fuel, exhaust temperatures, brake thermo efficiency and air gasoline ratio and it was compared with mineral diesels. The comparable fuel properties from bio diesel such as candlenut and soapnut oil with the diesel. With suitable blends the work is transported to find the discharge aspect of biodiesel.
