Diesel engines are 4-stroke, but they differ from their gasoline-powered counterparts in their method of combustion. Diesels rely on very high compression ratios to ignite the air/fuel mixture…

While it is known that diesel fuel combustion engines produce much lower concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) than gasoline engines, these emissions could certainly generate lethal ambient concentrations…

The researchers’ conclusion is that on days with little particulate matter in the air, a new diesel only purifies the air under the most favourable conditions, but that…

Because diesels are more efficient, they do in fact emit less carbon dioxide than gasoline engines. Diesel fuel contains about 12 percent more energy per gallon than ordinary…

Exhaust from trucks, buses, trains, ships, and other equipment with diesel engines contains a mixture of gases and solid particles. These solid particles are known as diesel particulate…

ZEREX G-05 contains a nitrite based additive that is designed to protect your diesel engine’s cylinder liners from cavitation erosion – a common type of erosion in diesel…

Diesel engines, too, can suffer the effects of starting fluid. Their high compression can cause the fluid to ignite too early, effectively causing pre-ignition, which invites all kinds…

6. Diesel engines get best performance below 65 miles per hour. They get peak power when the engine revolutions per minute (RPM) are low, generally at speeds below…

The internal combustion engine in the car converts the potential chemical energy in gasoline and oxygen into thermal energy which is transformed into the mechanical energy that accelerates…

Upwind turbines also include a yaw drive and motor — components that turns the nacelle to keep the rotor facing the wind when its direction changes. What type…
