The article provides analysis of main alternative energy resources and considers some variants for substitution of oil motor fuel with renewable resources. A rational composition of diesel mixed fuel (DMF) is justified for mixtures of plant oils (flax oil, soybean oil, crambe) and petrodiesel in the context of antiwear characteristics. Studying frictional characteristics of DMF with a universal tribometer with a four-ball friction unit allowed substantiating limiting and allowable concentration of the biological component, exceeding which leads to adsorption reduction in strength of friction surfaces. For DMFs, the use of flax seed is limited to a range of 20-40 vol %, that of soybean oil is limited to a range of 40-100 vol %; while that of crambe oil is in the range of 60-100 vol %. Despite the effect of adsorption reduction in strength of frictional surfaces at a 60% concentration of crambe oil, when the concentration is higher (up to 100 %) the antiwear characteristics of the crambe oil exceed those of commercial petrodiesel.
