Diesel? Gas?

I was wondering about the difference between diesel and gasoline internal combustion engines. You can't use gasoline (petrol) in diesel engines because it ignites too early. so what's to stop one from constructing a compression-ignition (read: diesel engine style) engine with different pressure parameters, so that it is optimised to run on gasoline? I'll bet there are lots of complications that make the optimisation a volatile one, but it turns out there are compression-ignition engines
for petrol too... at least at the research level.

On other thoughts about chemicals, I'd name a girl Sarin. Or a boy, for that matter. Yes, I would. (I was wondering what an aggropunk might do with the birthname "Serene.")
