How does petrol or diesel as a fuel make the vehicles run

a spark makes it explode and the explosion pushes a little lever thing called a piston which pushes and turns a rod that makes the wheels turn too because the wheels are connected to the axle. diesel in particular needs a special filter on the car because the exhaust or the smoky stuff that comes after the explosion is dirty

the spark is created by a spark plug which is a device that creates a whole bunch of static electricity which makes a spark when it releases itself and gasoline is flamable so if you take a flame and touch the gasoline it catches fire and explodes. and the spark is a little piece of fire

gasoline is ignited with a spark plug. diesel is ignited by compression.
