An emulsion of biodiesel and water is one of the possible approaches that have been used to overcome diesel engine pollution. In this work, the performance and emission characteristics of a 4-cylinder diesel engine using pure diesel, biodiesel B20 and emulsified biodiesel were investigated. Emulsified biodiesel containing 5 % and 10 % water were utilize for the engine tests. During the experimental work, the engine was set-up at 2500 rpm and 20 % to 60 % loads. The result shows the reduction in NOx formation when the water content in emulsified biodiesel increased from 5 % to 10%. For the performance, there were no significant differences between the engine break powers measured for emulsified biodiesel containing 5% water and diesel fuel.
