diesel index

[′dē·zəl ‚in‚deks]
(chemical engineering)
An empirical expression for the correlation between the aniline number of a diesel fuel and its ignitability.
(mechanical engineering)

1987), the quality parameter of diesel fuel is influenced by specific gravity, viscosity, aniline point and diesel index, and therefore this experiment covered physical characterization obtained by specific gravity parameter, viscosity, aniline point, flash point, API gravity and diesel index.
With daily consumer use of fuel, you see the price go up and down, but if you watch the diesel index, the cost of air and jet fuel have gone up and never come down.
