General Information On Diesel Engines

Diesel engines offer the lowest specific fuel usage of any other large internal combustion engine. The fact remains, two-stroke diesels with high pressure forced induction, particularly turbo charging, make up a large percentage of the largest diesel engines. Throughout North America, diesel engines are generally used in larger trucks, where the low stress, high efficiency […]

Gasoline Engines

Gas engines are known as internal combustion engines and are divided into two general classes, specifically two cycle and four cycle engines. A cycle of an engine represents one stroke of the piston or one half revolution of the crank shaft, as a complete revolution represents two cycles. With a two cycle engine, the power […]

Gas VS Diesel Boats

As you may know, diesel engines aren’t something you should take lightly. There are good reasons why the rush to put them in cars back in the 70s flopped. Diesel isn’t the ideal power source for all applications. Engine speed Diesel engines gained the reputation for long service life early on in the history of […]

Gas Versus Diesel

Cost Due to the high compression ratios and resulting high cylinder pressure in diesel engines, they must be built to withstand a lot more punishment than gas engines. The parts that are spruced up include a thicker block and cylinder heads, pistons, crankshaft, and valves, which can be very costly indeed. When it comes to […]
