Dual Fuel Engine
DF or Duel Fuel Engines are the type of engines which could work on a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or it can work on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines are not able to run on gas alone because they do not have an ignition system, nor do they have any spark plugs.
Since 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 instance, the fuel efficiency could be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable lean-burn, spark-ignited engine at 100% load. It could even be greater on lower loads.
