Diesel Mercedes, diesel BMW?

The usual questions we get; What do you think? Should I buy a diesel or gas powered automobile?

To put it promptly a diesel powered automobile, car or SUV designed and meant for long distance driving only. They not meant to perform for short trips or daily errands, due to the extensive complex emission control systems on board.

Diesel car’s emission control system needs to be self  cleaned intermittently just like your oven at home. The diesel particulate filter needs to be regenerated periodically which should not be interrupted multiple times or the check engine light will be illuminated.

Most European cars or trucks hate short distance driving, due to the fact they are built for the Autobahn where it will be driven at high speed so it gets a so called proper circulation.

Proper circulation ensures that the motor oil stays clean and filtered same applies to the diesel particulate filter as well which in turn extends the life of the engine and emission components. We have numerous clients with extreme mileage because their cars are distance driven regularly.

Diesel equipped cars or trucks will only return their investment if driven extra long distances like someone is on the road and travels a lot in my calculations at least 40 thousand kilometers a year, otherwise it will not be economical at all in the long term.
