Diesel Engines Vs Petrol Engines – Loyalty Driver
And petrol. There are some major differentiators. These distinctions will be clarified in this video.
Each engine operates on a 4 stroke cycle. It involves power, suction and compression. How the fuel is ignited can make a difference. Diesel engines are equipped with a self-ignition temperature and don’t need sparkplugs in order to ignite the fuel. The higher levels of compression naturally ignite the fuel in diesel engines. They have more compression ratios. This is determined by the volume ratio when uncompressed versus the volume when compressed. The compression ratio enables the diesel engine to generate more torque even at slower speeds. There is a possibility of having to repair your diesel engine more frequently.
Diesel engines are more efficient in terms of fuel efficiency than petrol engines. Diesel fuel is richer in Hydrocarbons that petrol. It means more energy can be stored. Diesel actually stores approximately 15% more energy. In other measurements, diesel is able to store 36.9 megajoules, while petrol is able to carry 33.7 megajoules.
