The easier it is for diesel fuel to ignite, the higher we say its relative cetane rating is. Generally, the faster the fuel in a diesel ignites, the better the engine will run. However, the higher a fuel’s cetane rating is, the less energy dense that fuel tends to be.

Most diesel fuel is made from crude oil. Diesel fuel is refined from crude oil at petroleum refineries. Diesel fuel and heating oil are distillate fuels. The main difference between the two fuels has been the sulfur content, with heating oil having a higher sulfur content. This difference has decreased over time as some states in the Northeast are phasing in ultra-low sulfur content standards ...
A fuel tax (also known as a petrol, gasoline or gas tax, or as a fuel duty) is an excise tax imposed on the sale of fuel. In most countries the fuel tax is imposed on fuels which are intended for transportation. Fuels used to power agricultural vehicles, and/or home heating oil which is similar to diesel are taxed at a different, usually lower rate.
