Abstract: This paper describes some results of the research in the area of some additives like, methanol, ethanol etc. mixture in gasoline. The world research are become scare and measure crunch is found in case of crude oil and petroleum product. There are many alternative fuels like methanol, ethanol, biodiesel, biogas, butane, hydrogen, among them methanol has greater octane number, high heat of evaporation, oxygen contains by weight % higher than other fuel which results that better engine performance and decrease in HC, HO, CO emission. This experimental performance test will be carried out at engine speed and variable load condition using various blends of M0 to M50 fuel into the effect of methanol addition to gasoline of performance of IC engine. This method is used for the increasing efficiency of vehicle by adding different % of methanol to the fuel and to decrease the pollution produce during the combustion process. Therefore alternative fuels source are sought to have alternative source for petrol without altering the coasting engine or slight change in the engine at low cost.
