Diesels are a lot like a gas motor. Except instead of a spark plug the very high compression ratio heats up the air in the cylinder, so when the fuel is injected and atomized it ignites. Otherwise they are pretty much the same engines, with diesel's generally being built stronger and better. I've seen quite a few gas engines converted to diesel, and i believe GM did it back in the 70's or 80's.
If i'm wrong please correct me.
