Which army used diesel engines in their tanks during the WW2?

Germans
British
Americans
Soviets
Most of the nations at the time used lighter and more ef­fi­cient petrol engines, often coming from the aviation in­dus­try. Soviets however decided to mass-pro­duce diesel engines. There were several reasons: diesel fuel was less flammable and there­fore safer, Soviet Union had the huge alu­mini­um forge ca­pac­i­ty, and they didn't have large diesel-­con­sum­ing fleet.
