Ban on Diesel Engines
Is banning diesel engines a solution to the scarcity of petroleum products?
Started on  23-Jul-2008  By  ABHIJEET MAHIDA   E-mail :

Have you thought how will people travel? In Mumbai for example how will the BEST run?? A majority of buses run on diesel! The only solution is to have heavy taxes on petrolum fuel and give maximum incentives to alternative fuel like gas and electricity.






Diesel is the byproduct of distillation of petroleum in refinaries, while petroleum is obtained naturally through decomposition of fossil fuels for years under great pressure. It is true that today the number of vehicles have increased thus accelerating the usage of petroleum / diesel and also contributing towards Global warming by releasing harmful gases in the atmosphere. But, I do not agree that banning of Diesel engines is a solution to the scarcity of Petroleum products. I am sure you would agree with me that, apart from diesel there are many other derivatives of petroleum that are in use, for e.g LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) in our cylinders, Kerosene used as a heating oil, for transportation, refrigeration etc. Then we have jet fuels and propellents being made using Petroleum. Plastic which forms a part of our daily lives is also a gift of petroleum. Apart from these there are many more derivatives of like, Natural gas, parafin Wax, Coke, Lubricants etc. All these have made us dependant on this Crude oil. Today, we cannot survive without any of the above mentioned byproducts, so by banning just one derivative would not help in sustaining the levels of petroleum left beneath the Earth's surface. We really need to look of an alternative of the Crude Oil. We should develop substitutes for all its derivatives so that its use is minimized. Banning of any product is NEVER an option.


Banning of Diesel Engines will not solve the scarcity of Petrol Products. It will create problems to the people who are having diesel engine vehicles. Also it will give great loss to the government who are running diesel engine vehicles for the people. It will give big problem to the commuters. etc. We have to increase peroleum production and reduce petrolum product usage.
