Hey, my first post so be nice if i have got it in the wrong forum =)

I am studying a Diesel engine, and wanted to find out more about the composition of Diesel. Ie, how its made, and what chemical composition it has, and any relevent equations?

I am looking for a few things, but Chalorific value is one, and how this is calculated and how much variation there is in theis value for Diesel.

I am looking for highstreet diesel, the one you use in the car.

Any information or a push in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks.
