Dual Fuel Engine
Dual Fuel or DF Engines are the type of engines that could work on a mixture of diesel fuel and gas fuel or it could work on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines could not operate on gas alone since they do not have an ignition system, nor do they possess any spark plugs.

Because diesel is not a pure gas, and it is not a pure diesel designed engine, it has some disadvantages in the department of fuel efficiency, as well as Methane slippage.. Like for instance, the fuel efficiency may be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100 percent load. It could even be greater on lower loads.
