In this work, experiments were conducted on a diesel engine fueled with n-pentanol/diesel blends to examine the effect of n-pentanol addition on the engine performance and emissions. Results show that, the addition of n-pentanol to diesel increases the brake specific fuel consumption and has little effect on the brake thermal efficiency. Additionally, the emissions of HC, CO and NOx are slightly increased with the increase of n-pentanol in the fuel blends, however, the particulate matter emission is significantly reduced.
