In this experimental study, the effects of different fuel cetane numbers (CNs) and fuel injection pressures on a Diesel engine emission and on the performance were investigated. For this purpose, the fuels with 46, 51, 54.5 and 61.5 CN were tested in a four cycle, four cylinder DI Diesel engine. Measurements were conducted for each of the injection pressures 100, 150, 200 and 250 bar. Keeping 150 bar injection pressure and the other parameters constant, the changes of engine performance for the different CNs were also tested at full load condition.
