Diesel

10ppm Diesel is a middle distillate and is primarily used as a fuel in the road transport sector. Diesel engines do not use high-voltage spark ignition, instead fuel ignition takes place as a result of compression of the inlet air mixture and then injection of fuel. Diesel can be blended with biofuels such as FAME content of up to 7 vol.% (B7).
