Camelina is the oil plant, from which the oil subjected to the esterification process can be used as motor fuel to diesel engines or as a bio-component added to traditional fuels. This fuel can be considered as a renewable fuel that can be bio-component for petroleum fuels. The article describes the characteristics of this fuel, and presents selected results of engine tests of camelina oil methyl ester compared with diesel fuel and rapeseed oil methyl esters. The interesting results that would require in the future to increase the interest in this type of fuel were obtained.
