Why we can't use Kerosene as a fuel in Diesel Engines ? Calorific value of kerosene is more than diesel and it is cheaper also, but still we can't ?



On using Kerosene as fuel in diesel engine, engine performs better. But we can't use Kerosene.

Give answer according to your skills. Please don't copy from other sources available on net.

You can use kerosene and militaries use kerosene so they have one universal fuel. It is kerosene because planes use it and so you are stuck on the higher end of things. Kerosene is higher up in the distillation therefore more expensive. Also u need to reexamine the entire legislation and cost of manufacturing and transportation along with emissions, engine parts and generally optimize the entire process. Besides aviation companies buy this stuff before its even made so good luck trying to distribute it
