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 150o Petrol have lower density than that used in diesel engine Petrol use spark ignition lather pressure ignition Petrol have different octane number than that used in diesel engine Petrol fuel cannot produce much power as that produced in diesel engine with real diesel fuel. Will not accomplish 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...
