Here’s How to Save Diesel Fuel in Heavy Equipment

For people who operate heavy equipment, saving money on fuel is always a top priority. While trucks and other machines do critical work, they can be expensive and wasteful to operate; companies and operators alike have begun to turn their attention to fuel-saving devices and other ways to lower emis

Understanding Fuel Economy — “Gas” Mileage

Thermal efficiency, compression ratio, and fuel density are the primary factors that determine the fuel efficiency — a.k.a. fuel economy — of an engine. If mounted in a car, pick up, truck, boat, ship, a piece of heavy equipment, etc., even more, variables come into play with respect to the fuel

Refining Processes of Diesel vs Gasoline

The refining processes of diesel vs gasoline begin with the separation of each from crude oil. The separation of diesel and gasoline hydrocarbons from crude oil occurs during the distillation process. Straight-run diesel and straight-run gasolines are the gasoline and diesel products that come out o

What is Gasoline and How is Gasoline Made from Crude Oil

“What is gasoline?” is a question with a very short answer: hydrocarbons. “What hydrocarbons are in gasoline?” is a question that requires a considerably longer answer. Hydrocarbons constitute the majority of the substance of fossil fuels and biofuels as well. More importantly, hydrocarbons
