A low cost laser induced fluorescence spectroscopic sensor (LFS-sensor) was designed to identify different fossil diesel fuels, biodiesel and biodiesel/diesel fuel blends. This sensor was built from commercial electronic and optical components. It provides the emission spectrum excited at 405 nm. Currently 52 spectra of different diesel fuels, biodiesels, biodiesel blends and gasoline were measured and stored in a reference data bank. Based on this, unknown fuel samples can be identified easily. Furthermore, the LFS-sensor is suitably for in-situ quantification of biodiesel in blends.
