Most freight and delivery trucks as well as trains, buses, boats, and farm, construction, and military vehicles have diesel engines. Some small trucks and cars also have diesel engines. Diesel fuel is also used in diesel engine generators to generate electricity, such as in remote villages in Alaska, among other locations around the world. Many industrial facilities, large buildings, institutional facilities, hospitals, and electric utilities have diesel generators for backup and emergency power supply.

In 1892, Akroyd Stuart patented a water-jacketed vaporiser to sanction compression ratios to be increased. In the same year, Thomas Henry Barton at Hornsbys built a working high-compression version for trial purposes, whereby the vaporiser was replaced with a cylinder cephalon, therefore not relying on vent being preheated, but by combustion through higher compression ratios. It ran for six hours—the first time automatic ignition was produced by compression alone. This was five years before Rudolf Diesel built his well-known noble-compression prototype engine in 1897.

Toyota Motor Co., Ltd. had been conducting research on diesel engines from early on, and around 1939 began efforts to develop a diesel engine, studying the diesel engine made by Junkers. However, this engine did not lead to commercialization before the war because of various factors in the industry and Japanese government agencies.
