Rudolf Diesel was granted a patent in 1898 for his internal combustion engine. The diesel engines of today are improved versions of his original concept and are used in ships, locomotives, large trucks, generating plants and small passenger and commercial vehicles. Although the diesel engine exists since the late 1800s it has taken until the early 21st century for LPG to be used in conjunction with the diesel fuel to improve the engines efficiency being demonstrated by the Diesel/Gas Australia system.
