2. Diesel Engines are more Reliable
Over the past 50+ years, diesel engines have proven themselves to be significantly more reliable than gasoline powered engines. One of the biggest reasons for this is the fact that a diesel engine does not require a high-voltage ignition system, and they also do not emit RF (radio frequency) that can cause issues with a vehicle’s electronic system. As long as car owners keep up with oil changes and other routine maintenance on the vehicle, it is not unheard of to see a diesel engine far outlast the other components in a vehicle. Some drivers have kept their diesel cars to the 4-500,000 mile range of the auto. With modern turbo-technology being increasingly popular for diesel owners, the past drawbacks for owning a diesel-powered car have also been significantly minimized.
