Diesel fuel and petrol (gasoline) fuel in terms of emissions:

  • Diesel Fuel: Diesel combustion generally results in higher emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter compared to petrol combustion. This is primarily due to the combustion characteristics of diesel engines and the composition of diesel fuel. However, modern diesel vehicles incorporate advanced emission control technologies such as particulate filters and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems to mitigate these emissions effectively.

  • Petrol (Gasoline): Petrol combustion typically leads to lower emissions of nitrogen oxides and particulate matter compared to diesel combustion. This is because petrol itself contains fewer impurities, resulting in fewer emitted particulates. Additionally, petrol engines may emit lower levels of nitrogen oxides due to differences in combustion processes and engine design.

In summary, while both diesel and petrol engines emit pollutants, diesel engines historically produced higher emissions. Nevertheless, advancements in emission control technologies have enabled both diesel and petrol vehicles to meet strict emissions standards.
