Which engine has highest compression ratio?

the diesel engine. it takes one ignition to start, then it runs off of (autoignition) ignition from heat caused by high compression. compression ignition (autoignition) causes ignition to happen a little earlier than spark ignition engines (gas engines) which is less vulnerable to risk of engine knocking or wasted power when dealing with high compression. -maddmatt
