(4) It mixes its fuel and air in the combustion chamber as in a four stroke cycle
The air enters through the intake ports and the fuel is injected

(5) The air supply to the engine is constant while the speed and power output of
the engine is regulated by controlling the quantity of fuel injected into the
(6) Unlike any of the other engine types, the two stroke cycle diesel engine must
