      I used to have a diesel 4x4 I nearly cried when I sold it I was so happy. Went to a petrol and never regretted it. Fuck the increased fuel costs, fuel is cheap. Fuel pump rebuilds etc on diesels are not. Modern petrols are fairly good on the juice even places like Fraser island now I average about 20l/100km.

      The ONLY reason to go with Diesel is if you tow very heavy trailers loaded down for long distances. In that situation Diesel hands down. But for every other situations it has to be Gasoline. Costs are a HUGE factor for Diesels are a much larger initial investment plus the maintenance costs can be massive. Chevrolet LS gasoline engines can be found in any salvage yard for only couple hundred us dollars. You won't find a used diesel engine for less than $5,000 dollars that's worth having. So there you have it. If you tow a very heavy trailer go with Diesel. For every thing else go Gasoline !......for instance... Work Diesel ---- Play Gasoline......

      Petrol engines can last a long time way longer than 5 years (depending on how you treat and drive it) I have a petrol 89 hilux with 430000km on it and it’s absolutely perfect

      Both my vehicles are 4x4 diesels. Yes they cost more up front, but for reliability and longevity the diesel is king.

      The diesel fuel has a higher energy density for a given volume than gasoline, more miles per gallon (K's per L.s). The low end grunt and torque of the diesel comes from the longer stroke required to achieve the higher compression ratio needed to ignite the diesel fuel.

      If your car runs on petrol, probably don’t put diesel in it. Vice versa

      One other minor down fall to diesel they put a lot of extra weight in the front. Can make it easier to bury you nose and sink in. See happen all the time with the guys that go mudding in the big 1 ton super duty/heavy duty American trucks. With the big 6.7L + Diesel engines with the twin turbos. There is a reason most of them are pavement princesses. Lol

      All the modern petrol coil packs are sealed and up high and water crossing haven't been an issue in 10 years. Diesels are now way to unreliable with there DPF and ERG systems and to get anywhere near the power of an equivalent petrol you have to spend a fortune and make it less reliable again. As for life span of the engines think of it this way, one is naturally aspirated and there other has 25psi boost before you modify it to try catch up to petrol power.
      The biggest problem with this debate is not enough people have owned both engines and only comment from one side.

      the issue is that modern diesel engines have the same electronic controls as gas engines, therefore the biggest advantages are now gone, plus at least in USA the engines now have DEF, DPF, ERG, and DOC, so they have the same exhaust heat as a gas engine, the same fuel economy, are more complex, and are FAR more expensive, whereas on gasoline all you have is EGR and catalytic reduction for emissions controls, plus most vehicles wont care too much if you remove the cats, and in some cases CEL wont even come on properly, thus eliminating the field fire risk, Modern US diesels will throw an absolute fit until you reprogram the computer.


      In the USA there is also the fact that diesel is less available than gas and is taxed higher in many cases, for example where I live gas is $2.47 per gallon, diesel is $3.97 per gallon and for the most part its taxes that make up the price difference, also in the US market usually gasoline engines are a far higher displacement than in eastern markets, thus with proper gearing they will crawl anywhere in first gear, in my case my unmodified BBF v8 will pull the truck hard enough to break 35-12.50s loose on gravel/mud/sand or on super steep inclines in 1st high at only 400 RPM with the idle screw turned in, even with my stock 3.54:1 gears

      One thing you mentioned in diesel is hard for controlling when the fuel burns and detonates uncontrollably. This is false. It's very easy. When the injector fires is when the diesel ignites. It does not detonate it burns progressively as long as the injector is injecting. Diesel engines are heavier because of higher cylinder pressure due to higher compression ratio and today high manifold pressure due to supercharging. They don't run high rpm because diesel burns so slow

      +M’ aiq Indirect injection engines still operate the same way. There's superheated air in the chamber and when the fuel is injected it ignites. Then the flame front moves into the main combustion chamber. It's why a carbureted diesel wouldn't work there would be pre ignition. The fuel burns as soon as it enters the engine

      Diesel was trying to build an engine with constant pressure cycle running on coal dust a proccess that nearly killed him when the cotraption blew up. That is why it really should be called a comppresion ignition engine.You obviously have not read much on the history of internal combustion engines, Internal fire by lyle Cummings is very good.

      I think one important point to mention is vehicles equipped with diesel engines generally are also built for work, meaning they are more robust and more reliable as a vehicle. Diesel powered vehicles also have larger and more robust brakes, a larger radiator, and larger oil/fluid capacities all adding up to a more robust more reliable vehicle. My wheeler is a 1986 ford f250 diesel with stock height suspention and a live axle front end swap, and it performs better and holds up to more punishment than most brand new off road vehicles that i wheel with. If it had more snappy horsepower, it would be far better in mud and sand, but i will sacrifice some horsepower to have the reliability and low rpm torque of a mechanical diesel. A reinforcing point, most of the time i spend off road is for off road recovery. The heavy robust components and the large cooling system make it an ideal vehicle for lots of low speed punishment such as making recoveries in the sand dunes.

      Isn't the higher weight of diesel actually an advantage to the diesel? I think so because it means it is storing more energy per unit of volume. In other words you'll travel further on a tank of diesel than the same size tank of fuel because diesel is more energy dense.

      Diesel if you are towing; Gasoline if you are off-roading. My FJ40 will run you into the ground as a petrol easy to work on engine and I don't have problems after 350k miles. On the other hand, my diesel will out tow anything as a Class 4 truck. You should do this again but do it as Carb vs EFI

      In the US, especially California, the only reason left to go diesel is if you need to tow a very large, heavy trailer. In pickup trucks used for towing, there is no comparison - diesel is the only choice you should even consider. The 5.7 l Cummins in my '98 Dodge 3/4 ton develops 450 lb/ft of torque at only 1700 rpm, and it will pull my 8000 pound boat and trailer out of the water and up a 15% grade launch ramp from a dead stop in first gear (manual transmission) at 850 rpm without even noticing the load. The same truck with a 5.7 l gasoline engine has to be revved to 4500 rpm to develop peak torque (only 300 lb ft), and it will be straining hard to pull 8000 pounds up a 15% grade. And I get 70% better fuel economy when towing than a 5.7l gasoline truck would. BUT, if you aren't using your truck to tow a trailer, the choice is much less clear, because the retail price of diesel fuel is kept artificially high by punitive government taxes in the US. Diesel fuel is never less than 25% more expensive than 87 octane regular gas, and in winter, it can be 40% more expensive, because much of the supply has to be diverted to home heating fuel users in the Upper Midwest and New England. With that price differential, plus add in the $7500 up front that you will pay for the diesel option, diesel pickups have become a niche market, and diesel cars are almost non-existant now. Mercedes-Benz may still be selling small numbers of them to die-hard diesel fans, but after the VW emissions-control scandal a couple of years ago, I am pretty sure that VW pulled out of the diesel market here. If I ever get a chance to visit Australia again, I'd love to test drive a Subaru Outback with a diesel if they are still selling them there.
