This paper presents an important analysis on the fuel extracted from waste plastic using the process of pyrolysis. Here, the plastics collected from local municipality are used for conversion of solid plastic waste to liquid fuel. The fuel prepared is blended with mixtures of oxygenated compounds to test the performance of the fuel. The bio-diesel or waste plastic oil (WPO) from the waste solid plastic is tested with other blended mixtures to find the mechanical efficiency, emission rate, brake test efficiency and total fuel consumption. Here, the efficiency between the pure diesel mixture and WPO with different blends that varied between 10-50% of pure diesel oil is tested. The performance of the produced WPO-diesel blended oil performs with better efficiency than the other fuels.
