What do you think may happen to my diesel engine after i accidentally changed its oil with a gasoline engine oil?
More than likely no damage was done. Drain out all the oil and fill it with the correct weight diesel oil.
NO, do not use diesel oil and a gasoline engine.
A gasoline engine will not run on diesel and a diesel engine will be destroyed if you run it on gasoline. Click the link.
Mix diesel in a gasoline engine and it will stall or run very poorly depending on how much you mixed in. Mix gasoline in a diesel engine and you will have engine damage.
If you're asking what will happen if you put gasoline in a diesel engine, the engine will be destroyed if you run it on gasoline.
Gasoline engine is an internal combustion engine where a diesel is an internal compression engine. Gasoline is highly flammable and explodes when an electrical spark is applied to it where diesel explodes when it is put under pressure
A diesel engine fires from compression and not from a spark. A diesel engine is also built much stronger than a gasoline engine. Diesel engines normally have less horsepower than a gasoline engine but have much more torc, or pulling power.
Diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines.
If gasoline is used in a diesel it will damage the engine. If diesel is used in a gasoline engine it will do no real damage as the engine will not run.
Diesel engine runs at a higher compression ratio than a gasoline engine. A typical diesel engine may also use a longer stroke and smaller bore than a gasoline engine. Diesel fuel has a higher energy density than gasoline.
Gasoline engines cannot run on diesel. Only a diesel engine can run diesel. And a diesel engine cannot run on gasoline.
In a gasoline engine, definitely not. There are times when it is not inappropriate to add small amounts of gasoline to diesel for a diesel engine.
No, putting gasoline in a diesel will destroy the diesel engine.
You cannot burn diesel fuel in a gasoline engine period. A gasoline engine will not run on diesel. So legality is a mute point. A gasoline engine and diesel engine are totally different in design and the way fuel is burned. The fuels are not interchangeable.
The gasoline engine came first. The gasoline engine was invented and patented in 1823 with the first efficient gasoline engine developed in 1876. The diesel was invented in 1893 which was 70 years after the gasoline engine.
Diesel engines run on diesel fuel. Gasoline will destroy a diesel engine.
If it's a gasoline engine it takes gasoline. If it's a diesel engine it takes diesel.
If the engine is a diesel use diesel fuel. If the engine is a gasoline engine use unleaded gasoline.
Both Diesel and Gasoline Engines are basically German inventions. The Diesel Engine was invented by Rudolf Diesel The Gasoline engine by Nikolaus August Otto :-)
You should immediately drain it out. Diesel oil normally has a higher weight than oil made for gasoline engines. Therefore you may have a lack of lubrication, especially at startup. This can cause premature engine wear.
You will destroy a diesel engine if you run gasoline in it. Do not even start the engine. You will have to drain the fuel tank, and all fuel lines.
It could either have a gasoline engine or a diesel engine
No, you cannot convert a gasoline engine to a diesel 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.
If you use Petrol or Gasoline in a Diesel engine you will destroy that engine. That is why you do not use it.
only if it has a diesel engine. A gasoline engine will not run properly on diesel fuel.
No, Gasoline or Petrol as it is also known will not fuel a diesel engine, in fact it may suffer permenant damage if you try.
No the compression in a Gasoline is only 8 to 1 in a Diesel it is 22 to 1 so it would blow up
No. A petrol or gasoline engine will not run on diesel fuel.
It won't run, that's for sure. Diesel is ignited by compression pressure, not by spark. And the compression in a gasoline engine is not sufficient to ignite the diesel.
It has a gasoline engine.
Running gasoline in a diesel will do serious damage to the engine. You must remove all the gasoline from the tanks, & fuel lines. Purge all gasoline. If you have not starter the engine just drain the tanks.
Petrol (gasoline) engines normally have more horsepower than a diesel. Diesel engines normally have more torque or pulling power than a gasoline engine.
definitley diesel its a much more effecient engine and surprisingly burns much cleaner than gasoline especially in performance if you put 5grand into a diesel truck your lookin at close to 30 mpgs or more as to were a gasoline engine would be getting only about 8
It is not possible to do this.
The diesel is more efficient but more expensive to build.
NO!!! It's not the same kind of engine. A diesel engine has glow plugs, a gasoline engine has spark plugs. A diesel engine ignite the fuel by compression, the gasoline engine ignite it with spark plugs.Some people add a SMALL amount of gasoline to their diesel fuel in the winter when the temperature falls below -20 deg celsius (5 deg below zero F), to prevent the diesel from turning waxy.
Diesel in a gasoline engine will not harm the engine other than that, depending on how much diesel you put in the tank, it will simply not run. It may clog the fuel filter or injectors but will do no other damage. Drain the tank and fill it up with gasoline if you put in over a couple of gallons.
If you accidentally put unleaded gasoline in a diesel engine and then drain the fuel out is there anything else that you have to do before refilling with diesel?
no... a diesel will run a lot better on gasoline than a gasoline motor will run on diesel... If you fill it with diesel fuel you should have no problems Correct. You should not have any problems after draining tank and refilling. If you started the vehicle or tried to start the vehicle it may not be a bad idea to change the fuel filter. If you ran the vehicle on the diesel - gasoline… Read More
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… Read More
Diesel engines do not require "ignition" to burn diesel fuel--it is powered by the "heat of compression" therefore diesel fuel has a much higher "flash point" than gasoline. If you were to put gasoline in a diesel engine you would probably blow the heads off the engine. Due to lower "flash point" (temperature when fuel ignites). If you were to put diesel fuel in a gasoline powered engine, it would not ignite and engine will… Read More
If it is a gas engine, yes. Diesel , no. Yes if it is gasoline engine,no if is a diesel.
One runs on diesel and the other on petrol. Click the link.
diesel. Diesel engines tend to have better efficiency especially at less than full load. Gasoline/Petrol and LPG engines tend to have better power weight ratios.
Higher than a gasoline engine.
Does Benz diesel engine has sensor to shut the engine if put gasoline in the fuel tank to shut the engine?
It does not have any sort of fuel type sensor, putting gasoline into the fuel tank of a diesel Mercedes will likely destroy the engine.
The main reason is that the way Diesel and Gasoline engines works is complete different, the gasoline needs a spark to explode and generate movement. The diesel explodes with pressure, the pressure of the fuel on the cylinder is what makes the explosion, so in a diesel engine you don't need an electric system to generate a spark. The compression in a diesel engine is a lot higher that a gasoline engine. All diesel engines… Read More
You cannot convert a gasoline engine into a diesel engine. You will have to remove the gas engine and install a diesel.
If you put gasoline in your diesel engine, first be sure to keep the engine turned off. If you have already started the engine, turn it off. Then, drain the fuel tank, remove and replace the fuel filter, and fill the tank with diesel. This should fix the problem.
A diesel engine ignites it's fuel through compression and has no spark plugs. A gasoline engine has 1 or 2 spark plugs in each cylinder that fires at a set time and ignites the fuel. A diesel engine typically has much more torque than a gasoline engine and is designed to pull a heavy load. A gasoline engine will accelerate faster than a diesel but the diesel will have much more torque and be able… Read More
Only if you put diesel in gas tank.
