The paper presents the bench tests’ results of a swirl chamber engine fed with a mixture of petroleum and synthetic fuels. Synthetic fuel comes from the processing of polymeric waste and its content in the mixture equaled to 7%. According to the results, the basic operational parameters of the engine did not change significantly. A minor increase in NO2 emissions was observed, which may be explained by the increased combustion temperature. Simultaneously, the reduction of the smoke was obtained.
