- The term “diesel” was originally linked only to the type of engine. It was not associated with any particular type of fuel.
- The inventor of the diesel engine, Rudolf Diesel, ran his first engines with peanut oil.
- Diesel fuel can be made from virtually any organic material (like peanut oil) if it possesses flammable properties. This flammability makes it suitable for the diesel process.
- Hydrocarbon-based diesel fuel has superior stability and cold-weather capabilities.
- To produce diesel fuel, crude oil is first distilled and then refined.
- Biodiesel engines can run on fuel obtained from used cooking oil or tallow!
- Diesel oil can be produced synthetically, using the process of gasification.
- The highest energy efficiency rate from initial oil extraction to combustion in the engine is with fossil diesel fuel.
