    Introduction: The demand and price of fuel was increasing day by day due to increase in number of vehicles because of continuous increase in population. Materials and Method: This is one of the major problem which we are facing in our day to day life. Result and Discussion: Marine algae are found to be the good source of hydrocarbons and it can be readily used in the production of liquid bio-fuel. In this study, Gracilariacorticata which was collectedfrom Covelong, Chennai, and Tamil Nadu was used for extracting biofuel using hexane as solvent by solvent extraction method and its properties were analyzed. Conclusion: Engine efficiency of pure algal fuel and its blends were also analyzed. Results showed that fuel blend with 80% diesel has good brake thermal efficiency.
