This research focuses on the analysis of performance of four stroke SI engine with the use of acetone & benzene fuel additives, the scenario petrol engines are widely used for various applications in automobiles due to the Benefits of interest of low particular weight, compactness, and effortlessness in the design, low production cost and low maintenance cost. Anyway, this sort of engine has two genuine disadvantages as poor mileage and high-unburned hydrocarbon emission. Gasoline additives can be produced from any material that can be decomposed into carbon monoxide (or carbon dioxide) and hydrogen. It offers a higher heat of evaporation resulting in a higher temperature drop and therefore higher volumetric efficiency. It also helps to control internal engine temperatures and heat flows so as to reduce heat losses and thus raising fuel efficiency The objective of this Project is to overcome the drawbacks of petrol engine and to analyze the effect of the gasoline Additives as a fuel on water cool engine to calculate the parameters like Brake Power, Indicated Power, related Mean successful pressure, Fuel Utilization, Brake Thermal Productivity, Mechanical Effectiveness and emissions with comparisonto petrol as a fuel. At that point, these fuel mixes, and the base gasoline fuel was scorched in the attempted engine. It is found that the octane number of gasoline increases constantly and straightforwardly with extending the benzene and acetone rate in gasoline.
