I absolutely agree!)Apparently Florida has a new 'Florida man' to keep the rest of us entertained.
But seriously, what is it about a state 3000 miles away from you that has you posting your political trash in this forum? Do they owe you money?
That's what I call pollution!
Excat reason why my misses sold the kia and got a mk7 golf. Every single cold start could smell strong odor of fuel. Never found the cause after lots of searches. Thought it was exhaust fumes initially but caught it one day coming from engine bay.I just noticed - why isn't the Hyundai/Kia Theta engine listed here? Maybe they think that having engines that seize or catch fire is a good asset...
I don't agree with that statement. Take a car that offers both engines, such as the Golf. While each gallon of D2 might emit more CO2 and other emissions compared to the gas engine, it uses far less fuel per mile, so the emissions per mile ends up lower for a diesel. Add in the particulate filter, which gas cars don't have, and you can easily end up with a far cleaner exhaust with a diesel.I agree with the fact that diesel engines are more harmful to the environment if compared to petrol engines...
Our society is severely misinformed and deceived by false media reporting. Worst shall become first in a few years. Just watch and see. Energy conservation will drive transportation decisions eventually. EV fad will soon be over.Lol. Doubtful that article will get much love here. Hardly a basis for “the worst engine of all time.”.
PH said it very well above2...
The author is severely misinformed.
I agree with you, atc.I don't agree with that statement. Take a car that offers both engines, such as the Golf.

My Passat has a perfectly clean tailpipe when I sold it back at 24,000 miles. My daughter's GTI exhaust tailpipe is black with soot, and if I clean it it's black again within days.
Gm built the 700r4 with a sunshell that was like 10 gauge thick. If it didn't take the transmission out it was certain cracked when you when to rebuild it. They made this for like 10+ years, never "fixing" it. I'm sure it made them a lot of money....The early ones vibrated themselves into pieces. And had all kinds of head issues. Like so many things from GM, they got it right, eventually.
Meh, you can't compare it in any simple formula.I agree with the fact that diesel engines are more harmful to the environment if compared to petrol engines, but let's be honest, Volkswagen diesel engines are far better than American petrol engines, because a 1.8 Volkswagen diesel engine will last much longer than any American petrol engine, moreover, it will be even more powerful than a 3.0 petrol engine because most American cars are using old injection powered engines.

Absolute junk...I pass by this thread every now-and-then since it keeps on chugging, handing that article any relevance it do not deserve. Whether you are looking into diesel variants out of Daimler Chrysler or the VW camp, their lack of success is largely scaled towards misconceptions; the dislike falls largely towards negative social stigma based upon the false idea that they are technologically inferior.
If you want to pick on a VW motor that is truly questionable, look no further than the new 2.0L's that are fitted into Tiguan's, etc...
