Diesel Fuel

We just learned about Gasoline.

Another thing made from oil is Diesel Fuel.

Just like gasoline, diesel fuel can be used in cars and motors to make things go.
The big difference between gasoline and diesel is that diesel is thicker, and more like crude oil.

Gasoline is more easy to start on fire, so gasoline engines use a spark to light up the fuel,
but diesel engines use pressure to cause heat and make the diesel start on fire and run the engine.
