The Mechanics Behind Diesel Engines

There isn’t much of a difference between gasoline and diesel engines. At their simplest, both are combustible engines. 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 switch up the order of events. In a diesel engine, air is compressed first and then the fuel is injected. Diesel engines don’t have spark plugs because air heats up when it’s compressed.

Diesels in the World

Diesels in cars, as mentioned above, aren’t very popular in the United States. Europe boasts several models of cars that are powered by diesel. As diesel improves, it’s becoming more and more popular in the United States.
