Maybe you should consider using eBay's search function with "World's Smallest Inline Diesel" ???

I wonder how much the gas station would charge for a thimble full of diesel.

They would think you're crazy and probably call the police.

Interesting!!; but we should all perhaps remember that our own nation's coinage is quite meaningless to others as a gauge of size --- Heaven knows I'm as guilty as anyone, having posted our totally illogical UK coins in many pictures!!!! A metric or imperial ruler in a shot is better understood worldwide?

The thought of trying to hand start and run a twin micro diesel is alarming; bearing in mind that each cylinder has its own ideal mixture and compression settings, which have to be set to absolute perfection for a good run!!!!

For the non diesel-minded, the fuel used is a fearsome threesome of anaesthetic Ether, Parrafin (kerosene) and lube of choice (usually castor) plus anti detonation additives based on cardiac drugs!.

The only non-vintage competitive modelling sphere in which diesel power now excells in is control line team racing, where the fuel efficiency allows them to dominate ---- the motors involved in this frantic sport are not for the slim-walleted!!!!

End of lecture!!

the engine looks the size of those CL .049 gas engines. i've yet to see one of those in any micro plane, but i'd imagine it would give a great scale appearance and sound. question though: arent all RC engines deisel? they all use a glow plug rather than a spark plug, so doesnt that qualify them?

Nick,
All glow engines are not disel. They burn Methenol with a mixture of Nitro, the glow plug actually burns the fuel. Where as a Disel engine burns them under compression. The glow plug uses a platinum coil which doesn't go out so long as the engine is running (you hope). That is why glow is glow, it's not disel, and it's not spark.
I hope this help, maybe some one will come and explain this better.
Henry

ok, i gotcha. i guess i assumed that the glow plug only burned the fuel when it was being charged by the glow-plug starter, and then compression just took over after that. thanks Henry

Nick,
No problem. I went electric and have never looked back, I love engines, I even have pictures of tattooed on my back, but i love to just plug and fly...No more flame outs...
regards,
Henry
p.s. They sound like weedeaters because they are weedeaters. Man i don't like those things.

Our mdel diesel engines are not a true diesel. A true diesel has fuel injection and a higher compression ratio. Our model diesels have compression higher than glow but lower than a true diesel. That is why die ethel ether is added to lower the flash point of the fuel. A diesel model engine has a carb similar to a glow engine but reduced area in the intake. Glow fuel requires more air to support combustion. I fly electric and diesel models. Jack
