The paper presents research results on smoke emission from AD3.152 diesel engine fuelled with rapeseed oil (RO) and its blends with diethyl ether (DEE). All necessary tests were carried out in stationary condition for selected rotational speeds of the crankshaft i.e.1000, 1500 and 2000 rpm as well as engine loads of 40, 80 and 120 Nm. Results of the research confirmed, that diethyl ether added in volumetric ratio of 40 % to rapeseed oil reduces smoke opacity even by 50% compared with the engine fuelled with neat rapeseed oil.
