A diesel engine is simpler than a gasoline engine, with fewer parts to maintain or replace. They use diesel instead of gasoline. They don’t have spark plugs, but use compression ignition (CI) system with glow plugs instead. Turbochargers are standard for better air compression making diesel engines much more fuel-efficient. They're made of heavy duty components, which means they typically last longer. A diesel engine to go up to 750,000 miles between overhauls.
