How are diesel engines different from gas engines?
Both gas engines and diesel engines are powered by internal combustion, but in distinct ways. A gas engine involves fuel and air injected into small metal cylinders. The engine piston compresses the mixture and a small electric spark from a sparking plug ignites it. The mixture explodes, generating power that drives the piston down the cylinder through the crankshaft and gears to turn the wheels.
In a diesel engine, air enters the cylinder and compressed with great force. Once the air is compressed, a mist of fuel is sprayed into the cylinder, in most cases by an electronic fuel-injection system. Because the air is so hot that the fuel instantly ignites and explodes without any need for a spark plug. This controlled explosion causes the piston to push back out of the cylinder, producing the power that drives the vehicle or machine.
