How a Diesel engine works.
The diesel engine differs from the gasoline powered engine by using compressed hot air instead of spark plugs. Feul is sprayed into the combustion chambers throught the feul injector nozzles and when the air in the chambers reaches such great pressure the air is hot enough to light the feul, therefore starting your engines. Thats why the diesel engine takes about 1 second longer to start up.
