Remember yesterday's Here's One Of Many Reasons Why Diesel Is The Devil's Fuel article? Here's six more runaway diesels caught on video.
Who'd have thought diesel engines could provide so much fun and enjoyment!
What is a runaway diesel? The devil's juice doesn't use spark plugs to run, it relies on compression. The only electrical aspect to making a diesel engine run is in the flow of fuel. But when oil mist gets in to the combustion chamber of a worn (knackered) diesel engine the engine can continue to run until it seizes. The only ways to stop it are to block the supply of air, by blocking the air intake, or to put it in gear, with the brakes on, and stall it.
