—This paper presents the physical characteristics of distilled waste plastic oil (DWPO) with diesel fuel. And experiment in influence of nozzle pressure on performance and emission in compression ignition engine running on distilled waste plastic oil (DWPO). The performance test of compression ignition engine running with these oils also has been tested. The physical characteristics are Gross calorific value (MJ/kg), Kinematic viscosity, cst @ 40°C, Specific Gravity@15.6°C, Cetane index, Flash point, °C Distillation temperature, °C @ 90% and distillation test. The performance, using Four-stroke, CI, direct injection, single cylinder 709 C.C., at standard nozzle pressure and setting nozzle pressure at 170,190 and 210 bar has been tested with in brake thermal efficiency, brake specific fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions. The results show that physical characteristics of distilled waste plastic oil (DWPO) similar to diesel oil. Furthermore the performance of the engine, which is run by that nozzle pressure and oil are in good condition. When the experiment in influence of nozzle pressure on performance and emission in compression ignition engine running on distilled waste plastic oil (DWPO) be similar to commercial diesel.
