The utilization of domestic biofuell is still very small and has the opportunity to be optimized. Biofuel is a fuel used as an alternative to fuel from diesel engines. The biofuel production through alcoholysis process of triglyceride from jatropha curcas oil using different type of catalyst. This works was conducted determine of the performance diesel engine using jatropha oil fuels biofuel. The biofuel is mixed with diesel are certain level comparison to obtain B10, B20, B30, B40, and B50 (B10 is mixture of biofuel 10 % and diesel 90 %, etc). In this study the rotation is used 1500 rpm. The results of diesel engine performance research show biofuel fuel B40 produces the best engine performance at 1500 rpm. In this round obtained the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) 0.19 % and Brake Thermal Efficiency (BTE) percentage of 30.22 %.
