All About a Barrel of Crude Oil and What It Consists Of
All About a Barrel of Crude Oil: What It Consists of and What the Different Levels Are in It When crude oil comes out of the ground, it’s nothing like the neat, consistent petroleum products with which we are so familiar. Surface facilities are required to separate water, sand and solids, natu
Interesting Facts You Never Knew About Diesel and Alzheimer’s
The Iron Oxides Found in Diesel Fuel Additives — Not Diesel Fuel — Linked to Alzheimer’s According to several mainstream media articles and reports, a new study conducted at Lancaster University and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences provides evidence that tiny ma
Diesel, the Cleanest Fossil Fuel There Is
Few industries have the ability to make a positive impact on the environment in the same way construction and excavation companies can, especially with respect to atmospheric-polluting emissions. And few industries are already doing more. Whether a conscious decision or not, construction and excavat
Power Generators, Ships, Cranes, Port Vehicles and Equipment, & More
A tremendous amount of the fuel used is for the transportation of cargo overseas. There are two primary reasons the vast majority of the fuel used in the shipping and cruise-line industry is diesel: it is less expensive and more efficient. But, diesel is also the best fossil fuel with respect to mot
Why Diesel Engines Get Better Gas Mileage and Burn Cleaner than Petrol Engines
Why diesel engines get better gas mileage and burn cleaner than petrol engines is because diesel is a cleaner more energy dense fuel. A diesel engine is between 25 and 35 percent more fuel efficient than a gasoline vehicle of comparable size. With a diesel engine, you go to the pump much less often
Is Diesel Cleaner than Gasoline and If So, What Makes Diesel Cleaner?
There are several answers to the question, “is diesel cleaner than gasoline?” Several answers are possible because there are several measures by which to judge the effects of fossil fuel on the environment and human health. Diesel and gasoline impact human health and the environment differently.
Most Toxic Emissions of Gasoline and Diesel: Worse Emissions from Both
Every fossil fuel is a composition of different hydrocarbons. The most toxic emissions of gasoline and diesel are not the same. As a result, different fossil fuels burn differently. Different fossil fuels combust at different temperatures and at different rates of efficiency. And, every fossil fuel
Which Fossil Fuel Pollutes the Least?
Asking which fossil fuel pollutes the least is a loaded question. It can be answered in several ways. The reason there are a variety of answers is that are different means of measuring fossil fuel emissions. Emissions per unit of volume — gallon, liter, cubic foot or meter? Which pollutes less per
Do Diesel Engines Pollute More than Petrol Engines? Why or Why Not?
Irrelevant factoids cloud the question, “do diesel engines pollute more than petrol engines?” Gasoline engine manufacturers and oil refining companies would like to have you believe so, but it does not. Simply, the answer is, no, diesel engines do not pollute more than petrol engines. In fact,
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
