Oilhammer, Ford does make a small diesel, it's in the euro Ford Ranger.
Toyota making a Push rod V-8 is great. If the Tundra came with a Push rod V-8 I would consider purchasing one, it a more robust work engine.
Overhead cams (in trucks) are for posers.
The CX-5 diesel if it ever comes out...
I think the main issue is caused by not getting it up to operating temperature. Seems like the aftermarket tuning is going to be able to get a lot out of this package. four injection events, variable timing. I am very interested.
If its free mix it, jet fuel has less energy in it then regular diesel because there is an additive for static and a additive to reduce freezing point. 43MJ/KG vs 48MJ/KG.
You wont get more MPG's/L then diesel but if its free you will get more MPG's/$
That low compression is going to make cold starts pretty hard up north. Other then cold starts I think its about time a variable valve timing was put on a diesel. Tuning should be pretty good too, with the variable valve.
Mazda should just launch the freaking thing already.
could be the fuel pump. when you turn on the key you should hear the pump prime the line. But what throws me is the dark black smoke which would be from not enough air. Check the air intake, and make sure the snow screen in the snorkel is removed. could also check the intercooler for oil build up.
DuronE 0w-40 is the way to go all basis are covered. My PD is 210,000 kms still original cam. Plus I drive like a mean it, so original clutch is gone.
exhaust smell when you start that is funny, might as well say does it smoke on a cold start.
But really if the guy wanted to put maple syrup in...
