   Regarding the use of Diesel engines on the German
dirigibles, I have heard that a major reason for the
choice of engine type was that the total weight of a
Diesel and its transatlantic fuel load was less than
that of a spark iginition engine and its fuel, because
of the difference in efficiency.
