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

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

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

What is in Diesel and How is Diesel Made from Crude Oil

“What is in diesel?” is a question with two answers, one very short and the other very long. The short answer is hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbons, as the name implies, are molecules made of hydrogen and carbon atom bonds. Hydrocarbons are the components of every fossil fuel — and biofuel — that ma
