Right some basics.
The diesel engine was brought to life by rudolph Diesel a long long time ago. It uses compression as an ignition source. Used to be slow and unwieldily due to being normally aspirated. The introduction of turbos changed the way they were thought of and now they are more popular in most markets than the petrol burners. They tend to run hotter and need better cooling options big radiators and fans etc. they are inherintly more economical. but the latest turbo/supercharged petrol engines are catching up. tend to be nosier and rattlier than petrol counterparts. the newest common rail engines have taken it a step further(fiats jtd being used by alfa , saab and vauxhall amongst others).

nuff said now someone can put a serious post. :lol:

I like Diesel engines and can in almost any case make then run more efficient, and more responsive then the manufacturer with ease.
