I’ve never owned one but I’m a big fan of diesels.
Diesel engines are becoming an increasingly attractive solution to high oil prices and the resulting high running costs of passenger cars and SUVs.
Diesel engines are 20-40% more efficient than gasoline engines depending on vehicle size and performance. Higher efficiency results in lower fuel consumption and lower carbon dioxide emissions for comparable performance. Low end torque is usually better than gasoline equivalents.
Diesel engines offer a solution to both economic and environmental challenges in the automotive sector.
Research indicates that the total number of unit sales in the passenger car & SUV/light duty truck diesel engine market in 2013 will reach 11.54M globally.
