In the present study Al2O3-SiO2-TiO2/C2H6O2 modified nanofluid flow over a stretching surface is considered with imposed inclined magnetic field. Three different suspended nanoparticles in a base fluid are considered in this next generation of hybrid nanofluid called as modified nanofluid. Ethanol glycol is taken as a base fluid with suspension of three nanoparticles of Al2O3, SiO2, and TiO2. The mathematical model of the flow is encountered by Runga-Kutta fourth order method using appropriate similarity transformations. As a key result it is observed that the capacity of heat transportation of modified nanofluid is higher as compared with nanofluids and hybrid nanofluids. Numerical solutions with graphical representation are presented. With increased inclined angle, parameter of magnetic field, and volume friction parameter a decrement in velocity field has been noticed for modified nanofluid.
