As it is known that a wider use of biodiesel as an alternative fuel. However, a higher viscosity when used at low temperatures, it is feared that the use of biodiesel may exhibit characteristics of different viscosity-temperature which can result in fuel injection pressure is higher at low temperature engine operation. The solution to this problem is the mixing of additives and blending of biodiesel and biodiesel and diesel. This study presents data for the viscosity of biodiesel mixed with generic and commercial additives with concentrations: 0.0; 0.25, 0.5 0.75; 1.0, and 1.25 vol% and a mixture of biodiesel and diesel fuel with concentration: 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30%. Biodiesel mixture is cooled starting temperature of 40°C to 0°C with a period of 5°C. Test results showed that the higher viscosity of pure biodiesel can be derived by mixing the additives and blending of biodiesel and biodiesel and diesel. Mixing behavior and mixing biodiesel with diesel fuel with biodiesel additives can lower the viscosity that is similar to the properties owned diesel fuel allow temperatures.Key words: biodiesel, additives, diesel, viscosity, low temperature
