Cars running on diesel engines might be very efficient when it comes tofuel consumption, but these cars tend to be noisier and produce moresmoke.   Unfortunately,despite that, most diesel engines are more expensive than those running ongasoline.     Diesel engines have higher compression ratios than a typical gasoline car , and these tend tocome heavier too.   Because of the higherweight and compression ratios, these tend to have lower maximum RPM ranges thancomparable gasoline engines, resulting to higher torque than horsepower, thusslower in acceleration.   Diesel engines need to be fuelinjected, but technology in the past was not that reliable and made fuelinjection expensive.   This also producedmore smoke and had a funny smell.    Another factor which did not take the diesel engine to the passenger carmarket is because diesel engines are nosier and would tend to vibrate.   Duringcold weather, a diesel engine would be more difficult to start.   For diesel engines that have ‘glow plugs’,you have to wait for these to heat up before you can start the engine.   Moreover, since diesel fuel is not readilyavailable, people also tend to prefer gasoline cars for convenience inrefueling.   Despitesuch disadvantages, many people still choose diesel engines for fueleconomy.   These engines also have longerlife than gasoline driven engines.   Suchwould translate to a large sum of savings as the longer the engine lasts, themore fuel savings you will accumulate.   Such advantages eliminate all of the above-mentioned disadvantages ofpicking diesel engines over gasoline engines.   Consideringthe higher acquisition cost of a diesel engine compared to that of a gasolineengine, there would be a need to prolong this engine’s life in order for fueleconomy advantage to overcome the high purchase price.   Ifyou have a diesel engine car, it is therefore important for you to make surethat you will be able to properly maintain your car to prolong its engine’slife.
