Diesel engines are manufactured in two-stroke and four-stroke versions. They were originally used as a more efficient replacement for steam engines. Since the 1910s they have been used in submarines and ships. Use in trains, trucks, heavy equipment and electric generating plants followed later. In the 1930s, they slowly began to be used in a few automobiles. Since the 1970s, the use of diesel engines in larger on-road and off-road vehicles in the USA increased significantly.
