Understand the Difference Between Gasoline & Diesel  


The difference in diesel trucks for sale and gasoline driven trucks is all in the fuel.  Gasoline and Diesel Fuel are the two main sources of energy for most vehicles on the road today.  You cannot interchange the fuel types in the same vehicle without completely changing the engine and fuel system.  The bottom line is that though they create the same effect, they are not the same thing.  Both are derivatives of crude oil and aside from the chemical differences they are burned differently in an engine. 

·         Diesel Engines 

   Use spark plugs to ignite gasoline, which is due to the low compression ratio in gasoline engines 

   Typical Stroke Cycle 

·         Gasoline and Air are combined and pushed into the cylinder 

·         It is compressed 

·         Spark plugs fire and ignite mixture which explodes 

·         The explosion forces the piston up and power to be made 

·         Burned mixture is pushed out the exhaust pipe 

·         Gasoline Engines 

   These have higher compression ratios, so instead of needing a spark to ignite the chemicals burst under the extreme pressure to make the energy.   

   Typical Stroke Cycle 

·         Air is forced into the cylinder. 

·         Diesel fuel is added. 

·         Compression ignites the mixture 

·         Explosion pushes the piston to power the engine. 

·         Burned mixture is pushed out the exhaust pipe.
