Abstract

•Biodiesel and ethanol reduced CO, HC, NOx, smoke opacity and increased CO2.•RSM can be employed to optimize engine performance and exhaust emissions.•A high desirability was obtained as 74% by RSM.•High desirability was detected at 2800 rpm, 63% diesel, 26% biodiesel and 11% ethanol blends.•Optimum parameters were 0.013% of CO, 41 ppm of HC, 643 ppm of NOx, 12% of smoke opacity and 7.3% of CO2.
