Diesel engines differ from gasoline engines in important ways. To see a diesel engine in action and learn the mechanics of how diesel engines intake and compress air see below.

Diesel Engines vs. Gasoline Engines

In theory, diesel engines and gasoline engines are quite similar. They are both internal combus­tion engines designed to convert the chemical energy available in fuel into mechanical energy. This mechanical energy moves pistons up and down inside cylinders. The pistons are connected to a crankshaft, and the up-and-down motion of the pistons, known as linear motion, creates the rotary motion needed to turn the wheels of a car forward.

Both diesel engines and gasoline engines covert fuel into energy through a series of small explosions or combustions. The major difference between diesel and gasoline is the way these explosions happen. In a gasoline engine, fuel is mixed with air, compressed by pistons and ignited by sparks from spark plugs. In a diesel engine, however, the air is compressed first, and then the fuel is injected. Because air heats up when it’s compressed, the fuel ignites.

When was the last time you saw a FUBAR car?

“FUBAR” Chevy Cavalier is a Twin-Engine Masterpiece

FUBAR.  I haven’t heard that phrase in years.  Remember the movie it came from?  Tango and Cash I believe.  Wow…how long ago was that?  I’ll tell you–it was Dec 22, 1989!  Nearly 30 years ago.  I don’t remember the whole movie, just bits and pieces.  And, I think it would probably be a pretty corny flick by today’s standards.  But then, what 1989 movie wouldn’t be?  Well, let’s see…there’s The Abyss, Driving Miss Daisy, Born on the Fourth of July and many more.  All released in 1989 and not quite so hokey.  OK…whatever.  I remember I enjoyed the film in 1989 even if I wouldn’t like it so much today.  And we did get FUBAR out of the whole thing.  That’s gotta be worth something, right?

Actually FUBAR is the third level of disaster. It is an unofficial military term.  This phrase did not originate in the movies.  It came to be on the battlefields.  FUBAR MEANS: ****** Up Beyond All Recognition.  And, that’s just not the case with this custom Cavalier.  Watch the video.  It’s short and interesting.

If a twin engine Cavalier is not your thing…visit Ron Westphal Chevy in Aurora, IL and check out the Chevrolet Cruze.  Only one engine and it’s a good one.  Call us today at 630-898-9630 to schedule a no-obligation test drive.
