Do Diesel Engines Actually Last Longer Than Gas Engines? – SlashGear

Both diesel and gasoline engines burn fuel to produce power, but they do it in different ways. While a gas engine uses spark plugs to ignite the air/fuel mix, diesels have no spark plugs and rely on fuel injection to initiate compression ignition, injecting the fuel after compressing the air and allowing the mixture to self-ignite. Moreover, gasoline burns faster, whereas diesel fuel is thicker, burns slower, and does not evaporate as quickly, enabling it to produce 20% more
