Diesel vs Gasoline “Exploration is the engine that drives innovation. Innovation drives economic growth. So let’s go exploring.” - Edith Widder. Exploring is just what engineers did with the diesel and gasoline engines. They have done wonders for the world and both want the same outcome; power, longevity, fuel economy and reliability,however, they are both different in their own way. The Gasoline and Diesel engine have differences and similarities that an average person might not know. These differences comes all the way from the first invention to the engine that runs in vehicles today. Diesel and Gasoline engines have differences and those differences can be for the better or for the worse. Fuel efficiency is a huge part in the world today. With prices soaring the roof at more than $3 a gallon, it 's important to make sure people get the right kind of engine for the job. Edward A. Sanchez states, “Conventional wisdom was that diesel was the only way to deliver significant fuel economy improvements in trucks. The growing emergence of direct-injected and turbocharged diesel engines have made the fuel economy difference between gas and diesel engines much smaller than before” (“Diesel Power”). This shows that the diesel engine was a huge way to improve fuel economy due to the engineering and chemistry of fuel through the injection and the turbocharger. The turbocharger uses energy produced by the exhaust to create power thus making it more efficient. However, Edward A.…
