Yup, diesel engines work on compression, while alcohol, gas, and nitro engines use glow or spark plugs.
Diesel engines work like fire pistons, compressing the fuel/air mix to the point of ignition since air heats up when compressed. Look up the fire piston if you don't know what it is...

"burn as much as 30 percent less fuel" -- one action

We need another action to compare using "than".

"do gasoline engines"--- another action...

C is the correct answer.

A is incorrect because it uses a noun i.e " that burned by gasoline engines" after than.

Before "than" one action is there . So after "than" also another action should be there.

Please give me kudo s if you liked my explanation.
