Biodiesel is an alternative fuel derived from varies sources of vegetable oils, animal fat, or waste frying oil to give the corresponding fatty acid methyl ester. The properties of alternative fuel of CPO biodiesel and SVO biodiesel have been investigated at different temperature. The biodiesel was blended up palm oil blending ratio from 5~15vol% (B5~B15) and straight vegetable oil ratio from 5~15vol% (S5~S15). The properties were tested at 27.5°C, 40°C, 50°C and 60°C with observed the changes of the density, kinematic viscosity, flash point, water contents, and acid value. In this study, properties of CPO biodiesel were found to have a higher value and diesel fuel under all ambient temperature. Under all ambient temperature, preheating CPO fuel increased value of density, kinematic viscosity, water contents, and acid value than SVO biodiesel
