The Mechanics Behind Diesel Engines

There isn't much of a difference between gasoline and diesel engines. Both are types of internal combustion engines designed to change chemical energy into mechanical energy. This energy moves pistons contained in cylinders. This motion rotates the crankshaft which starts the wheels of the vehicle to move.

Small explosions power both diesel and gasoline engines. Between gasoline and diesel engines, there is a difference in how those explosions happen. Diesel engines compress the air first and then inject the fuel. Because air becomes hotter when it is compressed, the process of compression creates the spark.

Diesels in the World

In the United States, diesels are mostly found in heavier vehicles. Europe manufactures several models of commuter vehicles that are powered by diesel. As diesel improves, it's becoming more and more popular in the United States.
