Dual Fuel Engine
DF or Duel Fuel Engines are the kind of engines that can run on a mixture of diesel fuel and gas fuel or it could run on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines could not work on gas alone because they do not posses an ignition system, nor do they possess any spark plugs.
Because diesel is not a pure gas, and it is not a pure diesel designed engine, it has some disadvantages in the department of Methane slippage as well as fuel efficiency.. For example, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100 percent load. It can even be greater on lower loads.
