photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Gasoline Gasoline properties:
liquid or gas state
made from fossil fuels, petrollium and crude oil
higher price than diesel
more convientent for farther travel
cause smog less than disel
perform lower milage
allowes the engines to start well in cold or hot weather
clean burning engine
non renewable source
gasoline engine use spark plugs Products of
Gasoline combustion Diesel properties diesel is more fuel efficient x 1.5
diesel cars, trucks have greater fuel economey 20-30% better compared to gasoline.
used for heavy duty vehicles such as trains, cranes, forklifts, etc.
diesel vehicle cost more than gasoline.
contribute to octane formation
heavier and oilier than gasoline
noisey and has a strong odour
combustion proccess creates soot
non renewable source
diesel engines have a high compression ratio

Products of Diesel combustion Carbon monoxide (CO)
hydrocarbons (HC)
Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) which fuel poses a greater threat
to the environment ? Diesel poses a greater threat to the environment than gasoline. The reason for this is that it releases more oxides of nitrogen than gasoline. Smog is mostly made up of these oxides. Diesel also produced much more pother than gasoline when it is burned.
research and improvment in obtaining the fuels has brought the effects of gasoline and diesel fairly close in comparisson for the environmental effects and people continue to work on making them more environmentaly friendly. Carbon monoxide.
Nitrogen dioxide.
