Diesel fuel and petrol fuel in terms of greater torque at lower RPM:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel engines typically produce more torque at lower engine speeds (RPM) compared to petrol engines. This characteristic is due to the inherent design differences between diesel and petrol engines, particularly in their combustion processes and fuel properties. Diesel engines operate on compression ignition, where the air-fuel mixture ignites spontaneously under high pressure and temperature, allowing them to generate high torque even at low RPMs. This characteristic makes diesel vehicles well-suited for tasks requiring high pulling power, such as towing or hauling heavy loads, as they can deliver ample torque at low engine speeds.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol engines generally produce less torque at lower RPMs compared to diesel engines. While petrol engines can also deliver torque, they often require higher engine speeds to reach their maximum torque output. Petrol engines rely on spark ignition, where the air-fuel mixture is ignited by a spark plug, and this combustion process may not generate as much torque at lower engine speeds as compression ignition in diesel engines. However, advancements in petrol engine technology, such as turbocharging and variable valve timing, have improved torque delivery across a broader RPM range in modern petrol vehicles.
