Yes, Diesel is more benign that gasoline/petrol or LPG/natural gas.
(It's not clear which you mean given international variations
yes - i went back and re-edited parts of my message to make it more
american. i guess i missed some. my bad.
in this part of the world:
what we call "Petrol", you call "Gas".
(likewise, what we call "Petroleum", you call "Gasoline").
what we call "Gas" typically means "Natural Gas" or "LPG". not "Gas" in
your sense (Petrol/Gasonline).
But note Diesel is the close brother to another substance...
Jet fuel is literally #1 Diesel /aka kerosene. So once it's lit,
the flashpoint is equally moot.
Jet Fuel is a fuel with very tight specifications (by the IATA no
less). it is a mix of Kerosene with other materials (Gasoline and Naphtha
typically) such that it has particular net-calorific values, specific
flash-point and freezing values and vapour pressures.
these are a lot more regulated than what you'd find with Diesel.
it is NOT Diesel.
yes, one could call Diesel and Jet Fuel cousins of one-another. but that
is like calling Lubricating Oil a cousin of Diesel.
