Tag: diesel fuel

Diesel fuel in general is any liquid fuel used in diesel engines, whose fuel ignition takes place, without spark, as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel. (Glow plugs, grid heaters and heater blocks help achieve high temperatures for combustion during engine startup in cold weather.) Diesel engines have found broad use as a result of higher thermodynamic and thus fuel efficiencies. This is particularly noted where diesel engines are run at part-load; as their air supply is not throttled as in a petrol engine, their efficiency still remains high.

A field of golden sunflowers stretches along the Neuse River Greenway in Raleigh, North Carolina. Their faces shift, following the sun’s path overhead.  

“Right now it looks like a sea of gold,” Tim Woody, superintendent of the Neuse River Resource Recovery Facility, told North Carolina Public Radio.

The California state legislature recently passed a major infrastructure bill that would raise $52 billion over 10 years to repair the state’s roads and bridges. The bulk of the funding will come from a 12-cents-per-gallon increase in the gas tax, as well as additional vehicle registration fees. There will also

Microgrid Technology to Improve Energy Security and Sustainablity

Nearly 25 years ago, Caterpillar opened a proving ground about 30 miles southwest of Tucson, AZ. The facility consists of large open-air test areas, where Caterpillar conducts field trials of many of its large mining equipment before being brought to market. The proving ground site also includes workshops and an office building.
