Different types of engines
With a diesel engine, heat is produced from the compressed air and fuel to generate power. Diesel engine has less electrical components and more fuel efficient and creates more torque.
The boxer engine uses pistons to cross each other towards the crank and away from it which occurs at the same time as each other. It is known as a boxer engine because the movement within the engine’s pistons help establish the movement of a boxer’s fist that fit a horizontal plane.
Straight engine in an all four-cylinder engine is straight and are the easiest to build when it comes to choosing between a V type engine or a boxer engine. These types of engines mean for lower maintenance costs and lower production costs and can also be exceptionally fuel efficient.
