    Abstract

    Vegetable oils and their spinoff biofuels, unremarkably named as “biodiesel,” are prominent candidates as alternative diesel fuels. Twelve different blends of CNO, Ethanol and Butanol hybrid biofuel were tested for engine efficiency and it is discovered that they are technically competitive with or provide technical benefits compared to conventional diesel fuel. Besides being a renewable and domestic resource, biodiesel reduces most emissions while engine performance and fuel economy are nearly identical compared to conventional fuels. A comprehensive study of Fiji’s coconut industry is also undertaken.
