Jatropha Oil (JPO) is an alternative fuel proposed to be used especially for renewable sources and energy preservation. Its characteristics need further investigation particularly for the use in burner combustion. The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of mixture formation and micro-explosion phenomenon during the rapid mixing of biodiesel-water and combustion process in burner combustion. In this research, the observation of mixture formation under variant blending ratio Jatropha oil biodiesel and premixing injector were focused on spray characteristics, mixture formation, flame development and exhaust emissions. The Jatropha oil was blended with standard diesel under different ratio; JPO5, JPO10, and JPO15 and variant in water content of W0, W5, W10 and W15. Real images captured using direct photography method were analyzed in order to understand the spray angle, spray penetration length and spray area under different equivalent ratio and water content. Addition of water content associated with the changes of the fuel-air mixture formation, hence it influences to the spray penetration length, sprays area and thus predominantly influences to toxic emission during combustion process
