The cycle-by-cycle fluctuations in peak pressure of combustion in a CI engine were studied for lower and higher blends of diesel and ester, and water-in-ester emulsions, at four injection timings and three injection pressures using coefficient of variation. The sunflower ester-diesel blends are found to have lower cycle-by-cycle fluctuations than pongemia ester-diesel blends. The fluctuations are found to be higher than that of diesel for higher blend proportions of ester. The water-in-ester emulsion show higher cycle-by-cycle fluctuations than that of ester-diesel blends. In most cases, the Brake specific energy consumption is also found to be higher where the coefficient of variation has higher values.
