Latest Advances in Diesel Technology And What is To Come

Diesel, in relation to other fossil fuels, is an exceptionally dense fuel. There are a variety of properties that are inherent in dense fuels. Because of the inherent properties of diesel, diesel engines are extremely energy efficient both respect to combustion efficiency and thermal efficiency.  H

Myths about Diesel and Diesel Engines Debunked

An American Scientific subscriber wrote to the magazine and asked why European cars are not available in the United States. What prompted the question is the fact that many European passengers, “cars are more efficient and better for the environment.” The answer received was short. According to
