Mamaroneck Car Insurance: Should You Purchase A Diesel Fueled Car?

Mamaroneck Car Insurance: Should You Purchase A Diesel Fueled Car?Fuel efficiency is one of many pressing issues for potential car buyers. With today’s market, there are plenty of hybrid and electric car options for consumers to choose from. Both are viable options for superior mileage, but there is another fuel efficient option to consider. The diesel fueled car.

Diesel fueled engines have been around since the early 1900’s but it is rare to find them in the consumer auto market. They are considered less eco-friendly, more expensive and noisier than their gasoline counterparts. Because of these difficulties, car manufacturers were less inclined to develop diesel based consumer cars. However, with improved catalytic converters and ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel), diesel motor technology has improved dramatically over time.

The main advantage in having a diesel fueled car over a traditional gasoline vehicle is achieving better mileage. They require less fuel to provide ignition than a gasoline engine does which is why they are able to achieve superior efficiency and mileage. Another advantage is that diesel motors are engineered to be sturdier than gasoline engines. Because diesel combustion is more strenuous on the system than spark ignition, diesel engines use higher quality and tougher components. By being more solidly built, parts are less likely to be serviced which leads to a higher resale value down the road.

Hybrids and electric cars have gotten the lion’s share of attention for consumers looking for fuel efficient vehicles. However, with diesel engine technology advancements, it is nice to have another option when shopping for a high mileage vehicle.
