The vibrations and noise of the internal combustion engine may be affected by several factors such as combustion pressure, movement of the piston-crank mechanism, coolant factor flow, engine body, and fuel inlet of the injector. Various ways have been done to reduce vibration and noise in the engine, including fuel. Alternative biofuels can be used in internal combustion engines without having to modify and change parameters on the machine. Several researchers have studied the effects of vibration and noise in the engine using various fuel mixtures. The results from some literature reported that biodiesel blend fuels proved to reduce vibration and noise in engines as compared to pure diesel. Meanwhile, ethanol fuel mixed with gasoline shows significant vibration changes at engine speeds of 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. The review aims to analyse the effects of vibration and noise on engines fueled by fuel mixtures, as well as fuel properties used as a move for future research. Based on the analysis from several kinds of literature, it shows that the use of biodiesel fuel and ethanol-gasoline can reduce vibration and noise.
