what fuel does your car use?
Note to mods: this was in GC because it would get the attention of more people who drive. and whoever give me the points, im sure you have posted in 'the wrong place' many times before
Mine is a diesel turbo and I love it. Don't like driving petrols (or normal diesels) cos you have to change gear too often!
They say that Diesel is the fuel that is most advancing by way of exemplifying that in the VW engines. When I heard that VW diesel engine start, my god that still sounded bad. Even their petrol engines sound bad. Their getting better in regards to performance, but the noise of them just turns me off. I'd rather get a hybrid.
I wouldn't mind one of the BMW or Merc twin turbo diesels if it HAD to be a diesel. I only put up with my VW diesel because it gets good mileage and is cheap.
You're right, the sound is horrible. A bus sounds better than my Golf.
Only time i'd have a diesel (in a car) is in a Land Rover, tbh
Petrol!!! The Naturally aspired petrol engines usually beat their equivalent in diesel and I'm talking performance wise!
I drive petrol, but my dad has had diesel mondeos for the last few years and the fuel consumption is amazing.
He's now moved on to a diesel Jaguar X-type (latest model), which is supposed to have the same fuel consumption as the mondeo (as its the same engine)
My car takes unleaded not sure if thats the same as petrol.
My mum's car is diesel but she fills it with vegetable oil instead to save money.
Petrol (and a lot of it unfortunately). Hopefully soon to be LPG converted.
Diesel is better new technology and no need for that biting point n s4it
Petrol currently, my next cars gunna be leaded however, until I can offord a conversion.
out of interest can a leaded engine use LPG without hardened valve seats?
LPG is gas, it'll be as complicated as making it compatable with unleaded.
Halfords do a good additive, my dad uses it on his car and it works fine, adds a bit of octane too
