The use of diesel engines in transportation has had a major impact on the industry as a whole. From heavy-duty vehicles to buses, diesel engines offer a number of advantages that make them the preferred choice for many applications. Heavy-duty vehicles require large amounts of fuel per mile, so using a less efficient fuel would result in a significant increase in fuel costs. Diesel engines, however, guarantee minimum costs per ton of material moved, higher load capacities and payloads, and maximum performance for heavy-duty applications.
In addition to the cost savings associated with diesel engines, they also offer maximum flexibility to change routes, provide service and expand to new communities without limiting the cost of installation or the availability of the supply network or access to parts and services. Dual-system buses are another example of how diesel engine technology has impacted transportation. These buses allow for the use of a reduced diesel engine, combined with the advantages of parallel or serial hybrid systems that capture and store brake energy and use it to reduce the load on the diesel engine. Overall, diesel engine technology has had a major impact on transportation as a whole.
From cost savings to increased flexibility, diesel engines offer a number of advantages that make them the preferred choice for many applications.
