    I have the dialect problem with gasses. What's the difference of English/American petrol, gas, diesel or gasoline?

    All of them have different purposes and are made for fueling different types of automobiles and engines.

    Petrol (petroleum) and gasoline are the same thing. In the U.S. "gas" generally refers to gasoline, but is often used for any fossil fuel, whether it be liquid or gaseous. Some folks in the U.K. also call diesel petrol. Technically speaking petrol is correct for any product derived from petroleum - gasoline, diesel, kerosene, naptha, etc.

    The physical/chemical difference... well, gasoline uses a spark to ignite, whereas diesel relies on the increased heat caused by compression for ignition. There are no spark plugs in a diesel engine.

    Well, what matters is that cars only use gasoline or diesel, right?

    I've actually never been interested in the difference between petrol and diesel; didn't know there was one. That's interesting though.

    Guess who's off to the kingdom of books tomorrow? I'll be smack-dab on the border between Wales and England, which is pretty cool, plus since it's a schoolday I'll be missing most of my least favourite classes. -w-

    Ethanol based fuel, LPG Fuel, Hydrogen-fuel cell and your petrol and diesel.

    Yeah, it's just that here, we don't use such fuels. LPG is gradually starting to appear...

    Here, we have diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, ethanol, and LP (mostly for forklifts and stuff like that). Actually it's hard to find gasoline that isn't mixed 90%/10% ethanol...

    Gasoline engines can actually run off of hydrogen gas, too (for a while). How 'bout that.

    Just odd things. I'm a bit OCD and It bugs me if a game has collectable items that I haven't found or certain bits I miss that most people wouldn't worry about. Watering berries was definitely a chore. Like picking acorns.

    I'd love an axolotl. I planned to get one last year but my friend told me hers evolved into a lizard type thing. They might be too exotic for me.

    I find this hard to believe. Containing it and more importantly controlling the flow of it is something I don't think regular engines can just do without modifying it, and the components are designed for gasoline combustion, not using hydrogen as primary source.


    Today is geometry till I start to cry day. Can't go wrong with that!

    There are laws requiring a certain level of ethanol to be used in gas I think. If I'm wrong about that, then I think that gas stations do it anyway because ethanol is cheaper than gasoline. What I do know for sure is that you get lower gas mileage with ethanol mixed fuel than you do with pure gasoline.

    I saw a car once that had a couple biodiesel bumper stickers on the back. The exhaust smelled like fast food, it was kind of awesome.

    It can, but unfortunately hydrogen gas is a bitch and three quarters to store.
    That's nice.

    You know, I legitimately have no idea what geometry is. Is that shapes and the sort, or am I thinking of something else?
