These pro-school are crazy man. We learn differently from different things. Common public school drags out bullshit information that you wont use much of. Trade schools are incredible. School is there for you to learn. If you cant learn but your trying to find ways to learn it differently, thats great! I taught myself highschool math because teachers gave up on me and litterally told me Im not teachable. By the end of the year, I jumped 3 grade levels in math and was correcting my teacher on problems she was messing up.

The thing that really made me like diesels is that you can create diesel fuel from almost any oil, like vegetable oil, or even used cooking oil (as long as you properly filter out particulates). It does have to go through a refining process, but you could essentially make your own biodiesel with oil at home if you wanted. That's cool! You basically just need oil, methanol, and lye, and some know how, and you can make biodiesel that can run in modern diesel engines with no conversion necessary (except if you have natural rubber seals, biodiesel eats through them so you'll need synthetic seals).

Our company has several cars with the same model and year but different engines. The petrol one consume 1 litre per 7 km. The diesel one can go about 10.5 km per litre. I like diesel more not only the fuel efficiency but also its got more power going uphill.

Stathis Bikos Prije 2 godina
One should point out that, although some newer diesels do have a throttle body/valve, it's not actually required for engine operation. Vehicles that do have it use it for allowing efficient EGR operation, smoother engine shutdown and sometimes help with engine braking. Diesels can't actually restrict airflow like petrol engines during normal operation as any significant decrease in airflow will reduce ultimate compression pressure below minimum and hinder fuel ignition. Thus throttle valves only operate during engine coasting (to help with EGR) or during shutdown (to reduce piston knock back as the engine stops) and in some other specific scenarios.

I own both a Turbocharged Petrol (2005 1.5T Mitsubishi Colt CZT) and a Turbocharged Diesel (2016 Seat Leon FR 184 TDI with a DTUK Tuning Box) car. Personally, I prefer the Diesel, boost kicks in way sooner (1800 RPM in the diesel, around 3500 in the Petrol) so it's great for overtaking and just in general driving such as pulling away from Junction. However I always make sure to only use the Diesel for longer journeys and the Petrol for shorter journeys to shops and such as the DPF getting clogged can be a big problem with the Diesel if you're not driving it often and long enough.

Diesel engines use glow plugs to ignite the air fuel mixture when starting up before switching to air compression for igniting the air fuel mixture. Because diesel is not volatile as petrol it does not give off vapours thus it is very hard to ignite when the Diesel engine is cold, especially in winter. I will stick with petrol since my winter season can be -30 degrees Celsius.

Diesel engines can run on waste vegetable oil or straight vegetable oil. It just need to be thinned by adding heaters to the fuel lines or mixing a little amount of petrol to your vege oil. Only for older engines.

From an engineering standpoint, the diesel's are way better due to the higher thermal efficiency. Now if we could do a diesel cycle with gasoline rather than an Otto cycle... that would take the cake
Marko Prije 3 godina
Diesel engines don't really use the diesel cycle but rather the Sabbathe cycle. Mostly the same but the expansion after ignittion is done in two parts i.e. partly with constant voliume and partly with constant pressure

lenooh puls
lenooh puls Prije 2 godina
The point of the turbo (3:56) is to pump more air in the cylinder. In a diesel you can pump as much as you want (the more, the better). With petrol you are limited by the stoichiometric ratio.
lenooh puls
lenooh puls Prije 2 godina
Bartonovich52 What you said is all correct, however you have to press "Read more" to see the full reply. I tried to be short on purpose. That said: Of course, you can just add more fuel to maintain the stoichiometric ratio, however (as you said) this will lead to engine knock IN PETROL engines. Not in diesel, since it only compresses air. And of course you can't just pump in an unlimited amount of air, because it would blow up the engine (both petrol and diesel).
Bartonovich52 Prije 2 godina
Uh... no. The stoichiometric ratio is just a air fuel ratio for complete combustion of fuels. For gasoline it’s 14.7:1. For diesel it’s 14.5:1. With either of them.... if you put more air in, you put more fuel in. Gasoline engines are generally limited by detonation. But although Diesel engines don’t have that limitation they are already running huge compression ratios, high heat, and insane forces on the dynamic components. Adding too much boost will destroy the engine as surely as a gasoline engine. This is why in tractor pulls they run super rich (smoky) mixtures for cooling, and have quite spectacular failures. That’s also why you want to avoid any chipped or modded Diesel engine like the plague.

Is there any engineering fault in making the diesel engine with a lower compression ratio and putting spark plugs to make it work like the petrol IC engine? If the diesel engine is made with a lower compression ratio and with spark plugs, then could the diesel engine be made to work hybrid like petrol engines do? Wouldn't it work because there would be more uniformity in the ignition of compressed air with diesel. Has anyone done any R&D on this thesis? If this thesis work then mass transportation vehicles like trains, busses, trucks and vans could be fitted with diesel hybrid engines! Couldn't it?

Diesel engines require oil that contains twice the calcium a third more phosphorus and magnesium. From 900-1100 parts per million and for calcium 1200-2400 ppm. This is in synthetic oil CF has been improved to CG-CH.
Jojokuber Prije 2 godina
I love diesel because you can put the turbo easier than in petrol engine. In petrol you need to change the ignintion for exaple and more parts and setting and engine maps, but in diesel you only change the fuel dose. In diesel and petrol engine you buy the intercooler and many pipes and of course turbo.

By the end of the video, you start comparing "apples to oranges" (even though they can be compared). Comparing naturally aspirated petrol engine to a turbocharged diesel engine isn't fair, because TD engines have much higher torque at lower rpms compared to NA engine that has linear distribution of power and torque. What you can compare though, are turbodiesel and turbo petrol engines. Great examples of the fuel-friendly and powerful petrol engines are BMW's TwinPower Turbo, VW/AUDI TFSI, Alfa Romeo TBI, etc. Turbodiesels cannot compare to them.

I haven’t had a petrol car for years. I like the fuel efficiency and low down grunt of TDI cars. My car only does between 1500 and 3500 revs, it’s all it needs to do. I fancy an RS3 or S3 but I’m unsure whether I should go with a BMW 335D MSport instead, great power and better on juice. My current BMW 1 series 118D MSport has done 168K and hasn’t skipped a beat, how reliable are Petrol engines these days for 30K per year driving??

Actually, the right reason is that the Autoignition temperature of the Diesel which is 210 C. The Autoignition temperature of Patrol is between 247-280 C. The compression ratio is just a result of the autoignition temperature fact. With bigger compression ratio, car could reach the 210 C faster. To reach 280 C, car needs a lot bigger compression ratio.

Forgot one fact! Diesels can turn into "runaway diesels" where the engine revs uncontrollably up to even 14000 rpm because of faulty gaskets in the turbo feeds oil into the engine causing ignition, turning the key won't help because the engine runs on oil now and not on diesel, so the only way to stop a runaway diesel is to either starve the engine of oxygen by taking a wood 2x4 covered with duct tape and putting it on the intake manifold so there is no air entering the engine or by holding down the clutch and brake pedals putting the car into the highest gear available and dropping the clutch and pressing the brake pedal hard so the engine stalls. Anyway hope you never get to experience a runaway diesel this has been education time with Vault-Tec Representative goodbye

Claudio Jose Capote have you even watched the video? Even though taking a diesel glow plug out would make it unable to make compression, by the time you take them out your engine would probably be dead anyway. And that's assuming you can take those out on an engine that's currently reving all it can.

So as far as I have understood, petrol engines don't require as much compression within the cylinder because they use a spark plug to burn the fuel. But in the case of a diesel engine, as the fuel needs a higher temperature to burn, it's requires a higher compression for the air to get hotter. Correct?

@Dinis Paulino Especially never ones with bigger engines and 6 cilinders or more, they have a good sound when you hit the pedal, but 4 cilinders sound really bad, more like a small working machine. Like a not so loud tractor. On the other hand, petrol engine 1.4 liters and up sound really good, and the bigger the engine the meaner the sound. Not to mention the instant throttle when you hit the pedal, and diesel have that lazy lag which annoys the hell out of me. I drove Mercedes 270 E from my friend, and it is damn powerful but even then it starts pulling like a second after you hit the pedal. That's something I really don't like in a car. If I press gas pedal I want the power now.

Buy a petrol since it’s quieter and more comfortable. It is worth the less mpg because you will not you use all the gas tank in 1 day and just pay for more gas if you need. Buy a diesel if you are trying to save money and don’t mind it being louder and more stinky. The diesel just gets better mpg. Conclusion: Buy a petrol unless your trying to save some money.

Sidik I mean technically with fuel injected vehicles (and with correct oil for the climate) you don’t need to warm up the car. However it’s in your best interest for the longevity of the car to get the oil flowing before you go anywhere. If it’s cold I don’t go anywhere until I see my thermostat move haha even if it’s warm (unless I’m in a hurry) I’ll wait for the thermostat to move.

You should make a video on which car company owns BMW owns rolls Royce and stuff like that. Although it can be searched online I think a video showing what all the major car companies own would be pretty cool.

I tought that the glowplug only works when you start the engine. But if I watch the animation, it glows constantly.

Diesel seems way better and less components that can break. my old saab currently has problems with the throttle body and coil packs constantly.

I've watched several videos that compare petrol and diesel. However, the take away of this sort of comparison feels like that petrol engine should not exist. Anyone can expain WHY we have both?

Petrol engines are important, don't get me wrong. We do need them, but for the daily jobs that occupy about 3 quraters of the year, for most of us, then Diesel Engines are the machines to do the job. This is why I love the diesel electric locomotives of railroads. I do have a soft spot for steam engines though, but to get the job done while conserving fuel and energy for tomorrow and the rest of the year, diesel engines have my vote. Whoever thought of the idea of diesel engines, thank you. Thank you for giving mankind something efficient and reliable. 👏👍

Super interesting! Wish I would have watched before, on our latest HRpost video, I take our diesel engine apart. As a female accountant, with no experience whatsoever, we can only hope she starts when I am finished! Don't even get me started on petrol engines - I am not ready!!

Diesel all day. Torque is where the fun is at. I've owned three BMWs and three ford's. One petrol from each brand and two diesels. You just can't beat the torque!

I like petrol engines better because I think they have a better sound and that you wouldn't need to pull the starter rope so hard if the engine has a starter rope.

Diesel all the way. You can go through three petrol cars, in the functional life of one diesel.
