Consider the following comparisons of Diesel with Gasoline:
1. In comparison to Gasoline, Diesel offers low volumetric energy density
2. In comparison to Gasoline, Diesel is cheap all over the world
3. In comparison to Gasoline, CO2 emissions from diesel are higher
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [D] None of them

Diesel is not cheaper than gasoline or petrol in all countries. When burned, Diesel offers a net heating value of 43.1 MJ/kg as opposed to 43.2 MJ/kg for gasoline. However, due to the higher density, diesel offers a higher volumetric energy density. CO2 emissions from diesel are slightly lower than for gasoline.
