How much worse are diesel engines for the environment?

    Compared to cars that run on gas engines, diesel engines are more efficient and durable. The high compression ratios and lean-burn combustion provide a more efficient means of travel, especially at great distances. However, diesel engines do pose threats and risks to the environment. As the engines create heat in the combustion process, nitrogen transforms into nitrogen oxides, which can damage lungs and eyes. Exhaust smoke is also a problem associated with diesel engines. Carbon particles are emitted from the release of energy, ultimately adding to air pollution problem and affecting our health.
