The key issue in using vegetable oil-based fuels is oxidation stability, stoichiometric point, bio-fuel composition, antioxidants on the degradation and viscosity thus influences to the different spray atomization and fuel air mixing characteristics. Purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of preheated biodiesel on fuel properties, spray characteristics and mixture formation. The detail behavior of mixture formation was investigated using the direct photography system with a digital color camera. This method can capture spray evaporation, spray length and mixture formation clearly with real images. Increased preheated fuel is found to enhance the spray penetration, resulting in increased the spray area and enhanced fuel-air premixing
