Why does diesel engine idling consume to little fuel?

Dear friends:

I've heard that diesel engine idling consumes only about 1/80 of
a similarly sized gasoline engine. I cannot figure out the logic behind this difference in fuel consumption level of diesel and gasoline engines. Could someone explain why?

Best regards,
