B5, diesel mixed with 5% biodiesel, is currently being developed to replace diesel, but there was lower engine performance. To improve the B5 properties, the addition of oxygenated additive is a better method. This research aims to study the performance of a high-speed direct injection (HSDI) diesel-engine generator at speed 3,000 rpm and different loads by using B5 blended to n-butanol and ethanol as increased to 20%. Results show that the use of B5-butanol-ethanol blends decreased engine performance as increasing ethanol; however, the release of nitric oxide, carbon monoxide, and black smoke was remarkably reduced as compared with B5. However, the use of B5 blended to 5% n-butanol, and 5% ethanol increased the electrical power to 0.33%, while electrical efficiency was added to 1.13%, and SFC was similar to B5. Therefore, this ratio can be applied with the diesel engines in the future.
