Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel
(18 March 1858 – 30 September 1913) was a German inventor, famous for the invention of the Diesel engine.
- The diesel engine can be fed with vegetable oils and would help considerably in the development of agriculture of the countries which use it.
- The use of vegetable oils for engine fuels may seem insignificant today. But such oils may become in course of time as important as petroleum and the coal tar products of the present time.
