Can I used unleaded fuel in a diesel van?

If the van has a diesel engine, then you MUST use diesel fuel. Unleaded gasoline will destroy a diesel engine. Diesel fuel is also used as a lubricant in a diesel engine. The use of any other fuel except diesel will result in serious damage. If you have put unleaded in your diesel, do not start or drive this vehicle until you drain the tank and change all the fuel filters.If the van has a diesel engine, then you MUST use diesel fuel.

What could happen if you put diesel fuel in a flex fuel engine?

Flex fuel does not mean you can use diesel. It means the engine can run on pure gasoline or on E85 gasoline. If you put diesel in this vehicle it simply will not run. Diesel can only be used in a diesel engine.

Can you use diesel fuel in a 2000 Ford Focus?

Do NOT use Diesel fuel in a Ford Focus. The engine will stop running and you will have to drain the gas tank to rid the car of the diesel fuel. Gasoline engines are not designed to run on diesel. They do not have enough compression to cause the diesel fuel to combust The only engine used in a 2000 Ford Focus was the 2.0 which is NOT a diesel engine.


Why petrol cannot be used in diesel engine?

Because a diesel needs high compression fuel. Petrol is low compression fuel.


When petrol is mixed with a diesel engine?

When petrol is mixed with diesel engine the engine will not start due to the following reasons;Fuel in diesel must be compressed at 400o and above to approach compression power while petrol start at 150oPetrol have lower density than that used in diesel enginePetrol use spark ignition lather pressure ignitionPetrol have different octane number than that used in diesel enginePetrol fuel cannot produce much power as that produced in diesel engine with real diesel fuel.Will not accomplish diesel engine phases

Can vegetable oil be used as fuel for a diesel engine?

Diesel engines can be operated with 'biofuel' with the proper adjustments.


Why cant petrol be used in diesel engine?

Because one has a petrol engine and the other has a diesel engine. Petrol/gasoline does not ignite the same way as diesel. It also does not have the lubrication qualities that diesel has. Gas in a diesel engine will damage the fuel system if the diesel very quickly.


What will happen if petrol is used as a fuel in diesel engine?

Petrol or gasoline in a diesel will cause internal engine damage. if petrol is used in diesel engine it may cause explosive sound with burning ....bcz high compression ratio ......


Can a petrol electric fuel be used for diesel?

I don't know what a 'petrol electric fuel' might be. You certainly can't use petrol in a diesel engine.


Why petrol cannot be used in diesel engines and vice versa?

Diesel fuel is used in diesel engines as a partial lubricant. It also has a high flash point due the fact that diesel engines ignite the fuel by compression rather than spark. A gasoline engine on the other hand fires the fuel by spark and the fuel has a lower flash point. Gasoline has no lubricating qualities whatsoever. Diesel engines are designed to run on diesel fuel and the use of gasoline in a diesel engine will destroy it. Gasoline engines on the other hand will not even run on diesel but no damage will be done to the engine. You will however have to drain the fuel tank and flush out the fuel lines.


What is biodiesel fuel?

Biodiesel is a type of diesel fuel made by refining ordinary vegitable oil. It can be used in almost any engine that petrolium based diesel can.

Is kerosene the same as diesel?

Kerosene is a type of Fuel. Diesel, named after the inventor, a type of internal combustion engine. true- No.2 Diesel Fuel is Kerosene- or JP-4 popularily used as an airplane fuel for jets.


What type of fuel can be used instead of diesel in some cars?

Only diesel should be used but in a pinch or emergency kerosene can be used. Diesel is usually number 2 fuel and kerosene is #1 fuel. By the way jet fuel is kerosene. So dont use it in a diesel to often, the higher octane rating could damage the engine over time.


What is the real name for diesel?

The name diesel is as real as it gets. It's named after Rudolph Diesel, a German engineer who designed the diesel engine, to which the term diesel refers. The fuel used to power these engines is a form of petroleum, called diesel after the engine.


How is a gasoline engine different from a diesel engine?

A gas engine ignites gasoline in the piston chamber with a spark from a spark plug. The expanding gas then pushes the piston out and the motor moves forward. A diesel engine uses diesel fuel, different from gasoline, and the fuel is compressed by the piston until it ignites, sending the piston out. There are no spark plugs in a a diesel engine. Some diesel engines will have "glow plugs" which are used to initially start the engine but once started, compressing the fuel is the method of ignition.


Why twin spark is used only in petrol engine?

Diesel engines do not use spark plugs to ignite the fuel. Instead they use the actual compression of the piston to ignite the fuel. To start a diesel engine a glow-plug is used, once the engine has started the compression causes the ignition. As a results of this diesel engine blocks are heavier to take the force of the ignition


What exactly does diesel engine parts mean?

Diesel engine parts are pieces of equipment used to construct a motor that runs on diesel fuel. This should be relatively self-explanatory, given the phrase.

Why otto cycle used for petrol engine and diesel cycle for diesel engine?
