      The comparison video I have been waiting for. Thanks a ton for making this video. It helped me to make an informed decision(Diesel).
      Great job!!

      So, what I'm getting from this channel is a) we need black steel wheels with mud tires 2)diesel motor (deliberately overfueling to make soot) d) sleeve tatt, neck beard and southern cross stickers for back window of rig. What else do I need? Light bar mounted on bullbar?

      In the States, diesel trucks and diesel 4x4s in general have higher resale value, all other things being equal.

      I love my 2005 GMC 2500HD Sierra truck, with 6.6L Duramax/Allison xmsn. Best vehicle I've ever owned. It does everything I need it to do. Has over 286,000 miles on it, with no failures. Can't ask for more. Diesel every time for trucks. My off-roader is a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4, with 4.0L straight-6, fuel injected engine. That engine is extremely reliable as well with more that 250,000 miles on it. The gas engine, however, cannot come close the fuel savings of the diesel truck when pulling a load.

      Haven't even watched yet. diesel is by far the best overall performer. Superior in: fuel storage (time and danger), engine longevity, maintenance requirements, flammability (petrol is far more dangerous), and more. The only thing gasoline "wins" in is cost of acquisition.


      Now, I'll watch the vid and see how I did.

      I really wish we had the diesel choices in the states that you all have down under. The EPA has our choices so choked out with emissions regulations that they are not really even a choice. Other than the heavier 3/4 ton trucks that is.

      Can an experienced driver or mechanic advise me?

      I have a choice between a 2.8 diesel mk2 pajero and a 3.5 v6 petrol mk2 pajero.
      I want to use if for weekend play days nothing too extreme maybe some big puddles.

      Which one would you suggest?

      3.5 v6 I'd go for.
      the torque is there when you need it especially with low range, parts are easier to change on them and if get water in engine you can take the spark plugs out and crank it and the water will shoot out.
      Okay you will burn A lot more fuel off road (if in deep mud ruts etc).

      Had petrol engines for years, then converted to diesel. One point, a big advantage, electronic ignition systems on petrol engines. Coil packs, ignition leads and plugs, either wet or break down in excessive heat, in addition to tuning these complex ignition systems in the bush. More grunt down low with diesels. Like the turbo ones. As you mentioned extra diesel, jerry cans, must use good quality metal ones, much safer for diesel, and longer storage time.
      Petrol, have experienced vapour locks in fuel lines.
      Converting to diesel engines, the best thing I did.
      All the best.

      Usually, I'll go petrol for daily driving or having a sports car. But since I moved to Europe, if you want an off road vehicle here, diesels are much better options. Better fuel economy, filling up the tank is cheaper than petrol, there's a lot of support of parts for maintenance and that extra torque is well useful, too.

      Also, it depends on the model. For example, Toyotas make bulletproof petrol engines that last forever, but I've heard their D-4Ds may have some issues. I would only choose Toyota if it's petrol. Otherwise, I'm thinking about getting a new Navara, Y61 Patrol or even a late 80s to mid 90s G Class, back when Mercs were solid built. All of them diesel, of course.

      Diesel engine are built stronger because of higher torque levels, massive compression ratio's with huge compression ignition values and also for long life reliability.
      Common Rail Diesel is not "uncontrollable" ignition, it is precisely injected just like a petrol engine.
      The older diesels engine are also not "uncontrollable" they just ignite the fuel at a less precise moment.

      Petrol 4.7L Landcruiser engines regularly go over half a million KMS.

      Diesel at idle burns less because it is diesel for 1 (More joules of energy per litre) and because it is not stoichiometrically locked with a certain Air Fuel Ratio.
      A diesel (non common rail) also has no throttle plate causing pumping losses and this increases economy over Petrol.
      Just my 2 cents worth.

      More energy in 1 litre of diesel to 1 litre of petrol. However in those sub zero temperatures diesel solidifies and requires additives and perhaps preheating.
