I am not well versed in diesel engines. To prove my point, I've learned in the last month that a two-stroke diesel engine actually exists.
What kind of diesel engine (four-stroke or two-stroke) is most commonly used in heavy vehicles that we all see roaming about the surface of the planet?
What is the reason a two-stroke or four-stroke engine would be the most used in a particular application?
I would imagine that a two-stroke diesel engine would have a higher emissions footprint, regarding hydrocarbons, than a four-stroke diesel engine due to the way that two-strokes function but this is an assumption on my part.
