This experimental study focuses on investigation of performance and utterance attributes of a normal diesel engine with biodiesel prepared from pongamia. This study aims to reduce the emission of nitrogen oxide by adding an oxidation inhibitor Tert-Butylhydroquinone (TBHQ). The analysis for each sample is to be carried out in compression ignition engine (standard diesel engine). The engine is tested with standard diesel, pongamia methyl ester biodiesel without any additives. Then the analysis is to be carried by adding nano additive copper oxide for about 50 ppm in the above mentioned fuels. From this the best combination is found out and test is again carried out by adding the oxidation inhibitor.
