The Top 7 Reasons We Love Diesel Engines

The Top 7 Reasons We Love Diesel Engines

It's the age-old question: should you go for a diesel engine when investing in a new truck, or stick to gasoline?

You're bound to have been told about the pros and cons of diesel engines - but we're all about the pros.

Read on for our 7 reasons we think you SHOULD take the plunge and go diesel.

1. Miles and Miles

Diesel engines are a better value when it comes to mileage. This is particularly helpful when it comes to larger, heavy-duty vehicles.

Trucks with a diesel engine often offer the driver 25-30% better fuel economy than a gas engine and so fuel economy is more effective.

This, in turn, proves more cost-effective, which is always a great reason to start off a pro list.

2. Efficiency

Diesel fuel is energy dense. This is due to the fact that it reuses energy, unlike gasoline. As a result, it's economically more efficient. 

3. Turbo Power

This is the key element of a diesel engine that makes it stand out over gasoline.

In a gas truck, turbochargers aren't included, so the vehicle's exhaust immediately heads for the tailpipe. In diesel cars, turbochargers push clean air into the engine and use the exhaust gasses to drive itself.

The turbocharger uses its turbine wheel within the same pipe as a compressor wheel, which means exhaust gasses are always required so that they can formulate air into the engine. 

As a result, thermal engine efficiency is greater in a diesel vehicle.

4. Longevity

Diesel engines are more robust, and they are built this way in order to withstand high compression.

Because of this, they won't wear out quickly - and, in theory, won't require many major repairs.

Some may even last up to 900,000 miles. Whether you want the same truck for that long is up to you, but at least you've got the option with a diesel engine truck.

5. Torque

Torque measures the force that can cause an object to rotate about an axis. Thanks to the process a diesel engine uses to burn fuel, there's more torque entering the driveshaft.

This means the vehicle will be faster. An added benefit is the fact that the larger machines can out-tow gas-powered trucks. You still won't have to sacrifice fuel economy, however.

6. Ever-evolving

Another benefit to this type of engine is the industry is ever-changing, and being constantly improved.

This is partly due to pressures from government bodies to clean up the planet, which means every-day use business and passenger vehicles are leaning toward efficiency and eco-friendliness.

This means you're likely to be able to upgrade your truck or add-on extra applications or accessories to improve your existing one.

7. Noise

Many equate diesel engines with loud noise.

This is a myth that the aforementioned ever-evolving industry has addressed and dealt with.

These days, there's little difference between the noise a diesel engine makes and the sound of a gas-powered vehicle.

    My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

    It is nice to know that diesel engines are always being improved because the industry is ever-changing. I am considering getting a diesel truck because I just started a hobby farm and need a reliable vehicle for hauling hay. I should contact a professional who can help me get the best truck for my needs.

    This is all very warm and fuzzy, but I currently own a 2008 Duramax, and have easily $22,000.00 in repairs on the engine. My mileage is only 178,500 miles, so where is all this amazing longevity? I am not sold on any of the arguments for owning a diesel powered vehicle!

    Wow, I had no idea that diesel-powered vehicles are known to last long while keeping the vehicle quiet while running. My brother is looking for a car to purchase within the year, and he plans to use it for office and personal use. I’ll recommend that he look for a nearby diesel fuel supplier before buying a diesel-powered car.
