Objectives: The intention of this work is to examine the emission characteristics of mustard oil methyl ester at various injection timings. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The work was done in vertical cylinder and air cooled diesel engine running at atmospheric conditions and at 1500 rpm. Findings: Result indicated that by advancing the fuel injection by 60 bT DC, NOX emission for Mustard oil methyl ester and diesel is increased by 11.61% and 16.12% respectively. In addition, HC emission elevates by 16.9% and 12.59% for MO and diesel. Furthermore, CO shoots up to by 6.94% and 10.42% for MO and diesel. Application/Improvements: This experimental study evidently indicates that by altering the fuel injection various emissions associated with CI engine increases for both the fuels stating that the fuels should be injected in appropriate timing (24°bTDC) to ensure uniform mixing, improved combustion and lesser emissions.
