Vegetable cooking oils (VCOs) and used vegetable cooking oils (UCOs) can be

considered as alternative fuels which will provide the household with low price fuel and may

solve the problem of getting rid of waste VCOs. Their utilization as cooking fuel can bring

numerous benefits not only for urban but also for rural communities in Indonesia. The paper

focuses on characterizing VCOs and UCOs as fuels for the household cooking application

using a modified pressurized cooking stove. Physical properties such as auto-ignition point,

auto-ignition time, flash point, density and viscosity of VCOs play the vital role in the

combustion. Some properties of these oils were measured and characterized according to

ASTM standards. The oil was used directly as a
