Diesel parts generally tend to last longer but are a little more expensive than gasoline parts. Diesel engines provide a higher torque which enable them carry heavy loads. This is why most of the heavy-duty automobiles are equipped with a diesel engine. Typically, diesel engines provide a higher fuel economy since they employ direct fuel injection and diesel is denser than gasoline. Diesel engines have a high compression ratio and lack an ignition system. Comparing the gasoline and diesel oil, the latter costs higher than the former.

Diesel engines are heavier and noisier than gasoline engines. Another disadvantage of diesel engines is that since they depend on heat to burn the air-fuel mixture, it becomes difficult to start diesel engines in cold weather conditions.


Though gasoline engines are more popular than diesel engines, many auto makers produce cars equipped with diesel engines. High-end car manufacturers such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz roll out cars that are powered by diesel engines. Like gasoline vehicles fulfill certain expectations of the customers, diesel engines also satisfy some of those needs.
