A few notes on Large diesels operating more efficiently at lower speeds

1) CRAZY long strokes = Higher Mean piston speeds
2) Diesel must have a different burn rate than Gasoline
3) Diesel components are forced to be stronger due to stress, heavier= stronger = more reciprocating mass= less reciprocations to reduce energy loss in reciprocations


I'm no expert here, but it is what came to mind.
