Loved it! thanks
I love the fireflies background music at the beginning
It says nothing to the fact that diesel fuel is the cleaner burning fuel or the fact that diesel fuel uses compression and glow plugs to combust the fuel inside the cylinder and also doesn't acknowledge the fact that diesel can get twice the range and three times the torque compared to gasoline. and it does not talk about how gasoline is just a waste byproduct of the production of diesel fuel.
There is no reason that you need a diesel car you're not pulling anything. that's stupid. No car needs a diesel engine.
Best explanation ❤️
Petrol car best
Absolutely fantastic demonstration 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Nice explanation 👍🏻
Diesel is more efficient and better.
I hear FIREFLIES 😂
well that was fun
Still diesel does a much better job in terms of effieciency and engine longevity. There is no way one could replace a diesel engine with petrol in the industry or long range travel. BBC is doing a mediocre job at introducing the true state of facts as always.
You forgot that one is spark ignition and he other is compression ignition.
And diesels have complete combustion.
😂….to hell with volume of compression and HEAT VALUE 🤦♂️….this has to be the worst example I’ve ever seen…this guy clearly has never worked on anything that runs on either fuel
And we use diesel because it gives twice as much power as its counterpart
Unbelievably, great explanations from practical standpoint. Quite inspiring and helpful in learning for any physics student! 😊
gas. = -21c flashpoint
diesel. = 55c flashpoint
The emissions information is out of date.
ive owned a 1.9diesel van since 2015, ive wrote down every amount of fuel ive put in it, im quite shocked how much i have put in it.
considering i hardly use it, i dont work much so its not done that much commuting, often there was weeks id never use it, but still ive put in 2928 pounds of diesel.
thats more than ive ever had in savings.
From this video alone , you would think that the only difference between the two fuels was the temperature at which they evapped/ burned + how clean they burned. Stupid. Others are saying this is one of the best explanations on YouTube? Not really. Diesel is a much more economic fuel, and has over 2x the mileage per gallon than regular petrol. Why not even mention that fact? Or the fact that Diesel engines can run on virtually anything, like grease or kerosene? Not convenient for your agenda, which is clearly to portray Diesel engines as archaic relics of the past which serve only to produce soot and filth up the environment.
