The demand for the energy and power has shown stunning growth in the past decade costing drastic increase in pollution and other environmental hazards. Biogas, a new renewable source of energy has been emerged as new confidence in dealing with such problems. In this paper, an experimental investigation on the performance of combined Biogas-Diesel run Dual-fuel engine is prosecuted through several experiments conducted in a modified engine. The performance was evaluated for an equal power output of both diesel and dual-fuel engine. This type of evaluation approach can decide the feasibility of a dual-fuel engine run by using both biogas and diesel.
