Petrol engine vs Diesel engine
Who wins the Race ?
The one who takes care of the engine wins the race/long run , be it petrol /diesel / gas / hybrid .
You can buy brand new petrol/diesel car and stuff up the engine in 3 months by neglecting the services .
As I said before Petrol vs Diesel in here is pretty much necessity vs availability .
We all need vehicle that's our necessity and what we can buy with the present financial status is the only thing available to us. According to one's budget one will buy a car that best suits his needs.
Have you ever seen a guy who wants a Mercedes but ends up getting a Hatch back ?
So people tend to buy what they think is good for them.
People buy diesel cars because its Cheap and people who travel a lot , think that is cheap form of transport.
People buy petrol cars when they know they don't travel too much and they want no hassle.
If you disregard the cost factor and think of performance let me share some of figures of my car
Car : Nissan Skyline R33 Series II
Year : 1996
Fuel Type : Premium Unleaded 98 octane
Engine : 2.5 Litre 6 cylinder Turbo charged coupled with Front mount intercooler pushing 14 psi into the intake plenum.
Dyno Report : 330hp @14psi
0-100kmph = 4.2 seconds
0-180 kmph = 10 seconds
Top speed = I achieved 200kmph ( No rev limiter, car does over 320 kmph)
To goto work ,I catch Train, Park my car at station which is about 3 minutes drive .
This is my weekend car , 16 years old car, I don't drive much during the week as I
don't have time.
We all call ourselves performance/car enthusiasts but still worry too much when it comes to the type of fuel.
As I said before diesel cars are our needs out there , if you want to call yourself a performance enthusiast , there is more then just a petrol car.
No offense to anyone
