Research related to the effect of fuel temperature on the performance of diesel engines has been carried out using various methods to find the best performance or maximum performance. The objective of this study has been to determine the extent of changes produced by heating fuels including Power, SFOC, BMEP, and Thermal Efficiency. The method of heating fuel in this study is by using heat recovery of a cooling jacket, using a shell and tube heat exchanger. The experiments have been carried out by applying variations in fuel temperature and engine speed, while the engine load is fixed. The results of the analysis have showed that the increase in temperature of B20 biodiesel fuel has affected the characteristics performance of the diesel engine including Power, SFOC, BMEP, and Thermal Efficiency.
