Not all engines are created equal, try a diesel engine today
Diesel is the world’s most efficient internal combustion engine. It provides more power and more fuel efficiency than alternatives such as petrol, compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas.
Fuel combustion is the primary difference between petrol and diesel engines. Petrol engines ignite fuel with spark plugs, whereas diesels ignite fuel with compression. Inside the engine, the combustion of air and fuel takes place under pressure and heat created by compressing the air-fuel mixture so intensely that it combusts spontaneously, releasing energy, that is transmitted to powering the wheels on a vehicle, the piston’s motion and creating mechanical energy.
Advanced new technologies such as electronic controls, common rail fuel injection, variable injection timing, improved combustion chamber configuration and turbocharging have made diesel engines cleaner, quieter and more powerful than past vehicles.
Today’s ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, advanced diesel engines from car manufacturers and effective emissions control combine to achieve near zero emissions that is smoke free. Clean diesel has proven energy efficiency, and ability to use a wide range of renewable fuels that position diesel as a key technology for growing economies to achieve cleaner air, lower greenhouse gas emissions and a sustainable environment around the world. Cleaner diesel fuel at the fuel stations like BHPetrol stations, advanced engines like SKYACTIV-D diesel from Mazda and effective emissions control make up a new generation of diesel.
