Hydrogen is one of the clean fuels in the world, as it does not contain carbon compounds. Hydrogen is a clean and efficient energy carrier with the potential to replace liquid and gaseous fossil fuels. , demonstration of hydrogen) for automobiles and power generation has been carried out all over the world. Hydrogen can be combusted directly in the IC engines or it can be used in the fuel cell to produce electricity, which can operate the vehicle. Hydrogen can be introduced into the engines by manifold induction, direct injection to the cylinder, and hydrogen–diesel duel fuel mode.

All the test engines that ran with vegetable oil/blends had more carbon buildup than diesel fuel. Malaysia uses palm oil as the major source of renewable energy for diesel engine purposes. Sapaun, Masjuki, and Azlan (1996) reported that palm oil 36 Alternative Fuels for Transportation as a diesel fuel substitute exhibited encouraging results. Power outputs were nearly the same for palm oil, blends of palm oil and diesel fuel, and 100% diesel fuel.
