In order to meet the energy requirements, there has been growing interest in alternative fuels like biodiesels, methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, biogas, hydrogen and producer gas to provide a suitable diesel substitute for internal combustion engines The performance of the CI engine was investigated for Dual Fuel Mode and mixed fuel mode operation in terms of brake thermal efficiency, specific energy consumption and compared with the base line performance of the engine. The specific energy consumption is found to be minimum in the tune of 13.8 MJ/kw-hr and the exhaust gas temperature is observed higher in the range of 427oC. The increment in load on the engine increases the brake thermal efficiency, exhaust gas temperature, liquid fuel replacement and lowered the specific energy consumption. The maximum liquid fuel replacement in the tune of 46.73% is possible with the use of mixed fuel
