Gas- Air controlled (throttle), spark ignition. Engines draw a vacuum in the intake manifold. More air/fuel mixture (open throttle plate)= more power.
Diesel- Fuel controlled (no throttle blade), compression ignition. In theory, no vacuum in intake, because there is no throttle blade. More fuel= more power.
Pretty cool idea. I don't know why American car makers don't make a modern clean diesel car. VW has a great plan with the TDI.
