In recent years due to excessive use of fossil fuel in a vehicular and industrial purpose its stock will almost come to end within few decades. Hence there are so many efforts towards the improving power output and reducing emissions from IC engine taking place. The experiments comprise the use of permanent magnets with different shapes like rectangular, cylindrical, square & the present study investigates the effect of magnetic field on the performance of three cylinder four stroke variable speed petrol engine. The study concentrates on the effect of magnetic field the engine performance parameters such as fuel consumption, air consumption, break thermal efficiency and exhaust emissions like CO, HC, and NOx. The magnetic field of permanent magnets is applied along the fuel line immediately before carburetor. The experiments were conducted at different engine loading conditions & it is found that there are appreciable changes in engine performance and emissions. The fuel consumption rate gets reduced as effect of that efficiency of engine is increased in some extent and emissions gets reduced as combustion of fuel is maximum.
