is it posible to make a crude oil engine with better range then diesel?

is ther more enrgy in a dop of crude oil then diesel but then water has more energy then petrol. then do you think it is posible one day to have vehicles running on pure crude oil with really really long range. you would just need much bigger heavy duty spark plugs. what do you think is it viable?

    1. A diesel does NOT use spark plugs.
    2. NO, there ARE "multi-fuel" engines that will run on almost anything from kerosene with a little oil to heavy "bunker" oil with a little kerosene, and they get their best economy AND power on diesel #2.

    Possible, probably. Practical, not. Crude has a lot of contaminates and is thick and goooy.

    You are a might confused. Water has NO usable energy. Crude oil does not pump very easily. Diesels don’t use spark plugs. Actually is sounds like you are quite confused.

    the range would depend on the drive systems/gear ratios

    not the engines
