Continuous increasing demand for petroleum fraction and decreasing petroleum recourses catch the importance towards the alternative fuel. In this paper cracking of used palm oil has been tried to obtain alternative fuel. The cracking was carried out in presence of CaCO3 as a catalyst. Various runs were carried out at different temp and catalyst concentration. The maximum liquid hydrocarbon ware obtain in presence of 5% CaCO3 catalyst
