Diesel cars with dead battery and alternator.

Dear friends:

Since diesel engines do not use spark plugs, I wonder whether it's true that a diesel car (e.g. an old one without any computer-controlled emission/timing etc..., and no lights) would continue to run until it is out of fuel even if its battery and alternator are completely dead.

If it is, it's a great advantage of a diesel car hehe.

Eric
