With the limited stock of liquid engine fossil fuels petrol and diesel available for automobile and mechanical industries, there is continues demand to use alternative sources. In view of this need, a study using ethanol-camphor mixtures was carried out to study its suitability an alternative of conventional liquid engine fuel. For this purpose, petrol, diesel, ethanol, ethanol-camphor (9:1), ethanol-camphor (8:2) and ethanol-camphor (7:3) were compared on various parameters. All the fuels under study were burned in an open flame system and flame temperature, duration of burning, flash point and density was determined. With this study it can be concluded that ethanol-camphor mixture can be used as alternative for conventional liquid fuel.
