Diesel is a hydrocarbon mixed fuel, containing mostly paraffins but also aromatic hydrocarbons and small amounts of olefins. It is a viscous, yellowish-green liquid that can be obtained from crude oil as a specific fractional distillate, with average chemical formula of C12H24. Diesel fuel originated in 1892 and is still the main fuel used for shipping goods and moving freight. In 2018, diesel accounted for about 20% of total U.S. petroleum consumption and about 22% of total petroleum consumption by the transportation sector.
