i have one problem regarding polymer behaviour in diesel& petrol engine. same polymer is used in diesel & petrol engine oil, but its working fine in petrol engine whereas in diesel engine, its gets jammed at fuel injector & resulting in deposition of soot at diesel injector & malfuctioning fuelcalibration.
what is micron size of filters used in diesel & petrol engines ( i guess diesel engine being a large engine mesh size may be big), please guide
I'm not a chemist but wouldn't that have more to do with the type of fuel being used than what size micron filter is beng used? Diesel fuels produce more soot therefore have more carbon deposits. Am I wrong?
