Diesel Engines

Diesel engines are similar to gasoline engines, but they have no spark plugs.

A diesel engine uses diesel as fuel. Compared to gasoline, diesel is less volatile and does not mix with air easily. Therefore, the cylinder takes in only air, not an air-fuel mixture. The air is compressed and heated up to a high temperature. When fuel is injected into the cylinder, it ignites spontaneously.
