The use of alternative energy source is expected to reduce fossil energy consumption and exhaust emissions. One of the non-fossil energy alternatives introduced for vehicles is bioethanol, it can produce in a simple way and cheap. Low-grade bioethanol has characteristics that depend on exhaust emissions generated. Low-grade bioethanol can be used as a substitute or mixture of fuel. The mixture of bioethanol and gasoline gives an effect to the increase of octane number and reduces the emission of CO2 produces. To get a more optimum effect on fuel consumption and emission, the oxygenated additive can be added to the fuel mixture. In this study, the effect of fuel consumption and emission was carried out by comparison of E5, E10, E15 without additive and with additive oxygenated cycloheptanol. The test will be performed by the method of calculating the amount of fuel consumption against the time to get specific fuel consumption. Emission test will be performed in single cylinder spark-ignition (SI) engine 150cc premix fuel with 100% opening throttle position connected to the gas analyzer in variation speed engine to see the emission gas. This study aims to obtain reduce the emission gas (CO2 and CO) and fuel consumption with the addition of the oxygenated additive.
