  • Diesel Engines

    the 80’s and 90’s diesel powered vehicles were infamous for their loud, smelly, and jittery engines. However, today’s diesel powered engines are significantly more quiet, more comfortable to drive, and with new technological advances, they aren’t throwing out black smelly fumes from their tail pipes thanks to newer catalytic converters. Diesel engines are more preferable today because they are superior fuel savers, last much more longer, and have a higher power output. A diesel engine is known for good fuel mileage and is more preferable today because they save a lot of fuel. Chuck Schifsky states, “Diesel fuel has a higher energy density than gasoline. One gallon of diesel contains approximately 147,000 BTUs of energy, while a gallon…

  • What Are Diesel Engines?

    switching from a gas to a diesel vehicle. Being statistically proven, the owner and driver of a VW Jetta sport wagon will save an estimated three thousand one hundred and twenty eight dollars over five years. Or even the VW Golf TDI or Turbocharged direct injection diesel car will save an estimated five thousand and thirteen dollars over five years(10) pg. 18. Diesel engines are superior to gas engines due to longevity, simplicity and reliability. A diesel engine is an internal combustion…

  • Gasoline Engine Vs Diesel Engine

    Both diesel engines and gasoline engines are internal combustion engines, which means they are designed to make mechanical energy by converting chemical energy available in fuel. Rotary motion is required to turn the wheels of a car forward. So to make this rotary motion, pistons connected to a crankshaft move in an up and down motion to create the rotary motion. Through a series of small combustions or explosions, diesel engines and gasoline engines convert fuel into energy. Diesel and…

  • Diesel Engine Vs Gas Engine

    reliable, and has power? Diesel vehicles are good on fuel, because they are good for about 300,000 miles, and provide more power. They are more reliable because they run off of compressed air and their engine parts are built stronger than traditional gas engines parts. Everyone should own a diesel vehicle over a gasoline vehicle because diesels are more fuel efficient, have more power, torque, and more reliable. Diesel engines provide more power using less fuel compared to gasoline engines. On…

  • Diesel Engine Research Paper

    think about what kind of engine is in it. Is it a diesel engine or a gasoline engine? All heavy equipment today has a diesel engine in it. Semi-truck must have a diesel engine in it for all the load that the trucks are pulling. 3/40-ton trucks are different; they can have both diesel or a gas engine. With diesel engines, there are so many different engine brands/ manufactures such as Cummins, Powerstroke, Duramax, International, Caterpillar and each diesel engine runs differently. Diesel…

  • Informative Essay On Diesel Engines

    As Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, once said “Clearly, there are many places where diesel is king or gas-turbine is king . . . but there are many places in the world where, as we 've seen, they just won 't do the job” (Daryl). Hydraulic electronic fuel injection units, turbochargers, and glow plugs—do the words mean anything to you? Car and truck motors are a mystery to many, but when diesel engines come into play, many can’t do anything except put them into gear and drive them. I will be…

  • Diesel: Internal Combustion Engine (SI)

    The NOx Problem 1. History of Diesel The diesel engine is a Compression Ignition (CI) Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) that was invented by Rudolf Diesel, a German engineer in 1892. Unlike a Sparked Ignition (SI) engine, Diesel designed the engine to run on vegetable oil, more specifically peanut oil. 2. CI vs SI, the difference As its name suggests, the CI engine’s ignition of the air-fuel mixture is caused by the mechanism compression rather than a spark from a spark plug of SI engine. This…

  • Diesel Engine Characteristics

    Diesel engine The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition engine) is an internal combustion engine that uses the compression to initiate ignition and burn the fuel that has been injected into the combustion chamber. This contrasts with spark-ignition engines such as a petrol engine (gasoline engine) or gas engine (using a gaseous fuel as opposed to gasoline), which use a spark plug to ignite an air-fuel mixture. The diesel engines have the highest thermal efficiency in any internal…

  • Personal Narrative: A Career In Diesel Engines

    Diesel technicians are frequently the highest paid on a dealership lane, and get paid just as much if not more than most computer programming jobs as well as much more. Diesel engines contribute to about 52% of the vehicles on the road today and that number is only expected to go up. As the amount of diesel vehicles go up, the demand for technicians to work on them will raise as well. Not only do diesel engines interest me, but engines in general. So the time for me to pursue my career is…
