    Default Parado vs. Toyota Surf - Swat

    This video was captured by me when I was on trip to Mahudand Lake, Swat. Interesting shot. I also have a question from experts. I think both vehicles are diesel engine. Why one is giving gray and other is giving black smoke?

    The first one looks like a petrol FJ70, hence the white smoke. Surf is diesel, hence the black smoke.

    Well, only too often, we see one driver being better than the other. In this case, the person on the Cruiser was a much better driver. Having said that, the Cruiser is a crawler, so is the Potohar you are talking about, and the Surf is just another run of the mill SUV. So, I don't doubt that the crawlers performed better. But to me, it looks more like driver error.

    i'll also go with the "driver error" idea, why he let off the throttle mid-climb is beyond me.

    @qwerty
    in these cases an auto might have compensated for lack of skill as there is less clutch slip and the car is always in "gear".

    They're technically the same rides with same purpose. I'd say its the person behind the wheel, who makes the difference in this case.

    White Smoke in any Engine is not considered as good sign, while both can give that.

    So the Surf made it with so little momentum without a Turbo on the second attempt. That's pretty decent, I should say.
