This is true, but now not all gasoline engines use spark plugs.

Good one!! Diesel engines don't need spark plugs. "Autocombustion" takes the place of the spark plugs. Diesel engines use a higher compression ratios than standard gas powered engines. The higher compression ratio forces the diesel gas to combust on its own. Diesel engines are better for low powered torque.
