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

Like for example, the fuel efficiency can be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable lean-burn, spark-ignited engine at 100 percent load. It can even be lower or higher loads.
