The need for biodiesel as an alternative fuel will increase along with the increasing energy consumptions and the depletion of fossil fuel reserves. Jatropha oil and soybean oil are potential raw materials for biodiesel. Each raw material gives different properties to biodiesel. Mixing the two types of oil makes it possible to improve the quality of biodiesel. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of variations in the composition of the oil mixture on the biodiesel properties. Jatropha oil was mixed with soybean oil in various compositions. The mixture was heated and stirred for 60 min at 90oC. The more the percentage of soybean oil biodiesel, the viscosity of the biodiesel mixture decreased. Mixing with 20% soybean oil has a significant reduction in viscosity. The increasing percentage of soybean oil also influences the higher heating value of the biodiesel mixture.

Keywords: heating value; viscosity; jatropha oil; soybean oil;biodiesel
