Shortage in the hydrocarbon fuel sources and the future stringent emission regulations have been a formidable challenge to the most prominent worldwide automotive industries. Therefore, the alternative sources of fuel are receiving a lot attention in the automotive industry. Moving on to Malaysia, Green Technology and The Climate Change Council (MTHPI) is adopting implementation of green technology on the reduction an atmospheric greenhouse linked to the global warming and climate change. According to the effects of greenhouse, this council policy proposed the aggressive policy and incentives on the renewably energy. For that reason, the vehicles run by Bio-diesel Fuel (BDF) has been a potential option. The key issue in using vegetable oil-based fuels is oxidation stability, stoichiometric point, bio-fuel composition, antioxidants on the degradation and much oxygen with comparing to diesel gas oil. However, the application of the BDF in the diesel engines offer not only attractive and more economical fuel but also creates problems of higher emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) compared with petroleum based diesel. However, many technologies for reducing exhaust emissions of wide variety of BDF engines have been considered with the improvement throughout the combustion process especially the fuel-air premixing and mixture formation. Purpose of this study is to analyze the relation between mixture formation during the ignition delay period and burning process in BDF combustion that strongly affects the exhaust emissions. In this study, a new concept of bio-diesel combustion was used to simulate actual phenomenon inside the chamber with changing design parameter such as air motion and injection pressure in order to improve mixture formation.
