Abstract
The subject of fuel consumption and vehicle power is intrinsically interesting and worthy of study particularly in relation to the use of fuel mixtures. This study examined a mixture of 40 litres of Biosolar and 1 litre of Pertamax used to fuel a diesel engine. In this experimental study, the object being researched was an Isuzu Panther car with a 2230cc, four-cylinder indirect injection diesel engine. The engine rotation varied from 1400 rpm to 2900 rpm, with a margin of 300 rpm. The researchers used a dyno tester as a power metre and a measuring tube as a fuel consumption gauge. Data analysis was performed through paired samples t-tests with a significant level of 0.05; calculations were done with the aid of SPSS 22 for Windows. The research results indicated that there was a difference in power of the diesel engine using pure Biosolar; there was a difference in power of the diesel engine using a mixture of Biosolar and Pertamax; there was a difference in fuel consumption of using a mixture of Biosolar and Pertamax; there was a difference in engine power between the use of pure Biosolar and a mixture of Biosolar and Pertamax; there was a difference in fuel consumption between the use of pure Biosolar and a mixture of Biosolar and Pertamax.
