ABSTRACT

Biodiesel is one of the most important alternative source for fossil fuel that has several distinctive advantageous. However, biodiesel has high level of acidity and water content that the practical application of biodiesel needed to be blended with fossil fuel. This paper investigated on the effect of the high blended ratio (HBR) biodiesel over the long storage time that was analyzed at three different temperature setting. The HBR biodiesel has high level of acidic content that high level of acidic was found on the high ratio of HBR biodiesel. The storage time further increase the acidic content of biodiesel especially at high temperature storage. The water content in HBR biodiesel was also found increases with increases of storage time and rate of water content was more aggressive at high temperature storage time.
