During recent years there is a growing interest in producing biodiesel from fish wastes as alternative renewable source for declining fossil fuel resources. Present study aims at producing and transesterification of biodiesel from Labeo rohita visceral mass. Resulted fatty acids methyl esters was mixed with pure diesel in different ratios to investigate its efficiency as fuel in IC engine and the results were compared with pure diesel. Ratios of fish-oil to diesel used in experiments were 0:100, 10:90 and 20:80 respectively. Results indicated that the performance parameters of ignition power, IMEP and airflow ratios were higher with 10:90% and IP, BP, ITH, BTH, IMEP, BMEP and air flow ratios were higher with 20:80 respectively.
