I run The single-cylinder small diesel engine from Kohler on the Dyno with 3 different fuels to see how much power it makes in preparation for the upcoming diesel episodes.

As well as the see-through diesel engine series but I will be building using this engine as the blueprint engine.Here’s the oem specs for this diesel engine Tier 4 emissions: 8.5HP @ 3600rpm and 23 lb-ft of torque @ 2200rpm.
This is the diesel engine then I’m going to be using for the diesel series which I’m currently working on which includes a bunch of cool off the wall episodes as well as the see-through diesel engine itself, I’m just going to have some fun with the engine first.
In the first test the engine is working with standard diesel, and produces 8.5 horsepowers and 2,800 rpm. In the second test the engine is working with bio diesel and produces 7.73 horsepowers and 2,800 rpm. In the final test the engine is working with hydrodiesel and produces 8.83 horsepowers and 2,900 rpm.
