Talking Naming diesel.......


I read and reread a few of your posting and I wonder if you could take a look at my posting (of 10 min's ago) about white smoke and oily sheen in exhaust water? see thread. I would really appreciate your ideas? thanks, Woody

The correct translation of the words "diesel fuel" is probably OK in your list. But in scandinavia (Sweden,Norway,Denmark, Finnland) and Germany, England ,The Netherlands(Holland,Belgium) and more countries, Probably in the whole Europe - We mostly use and understand the single word "Diesel" or diesel oil.
