    Default Should we throw away our Diesel cars and SUVs

    dear members, recently i have seen members and other sellers throwing away there well maintained Diesel powered cars and SUVs in very less amount(cheap prices),possible reason is high fuel prices but have you really calculated the cost vis a vis massive power to enjoy, if not then see this equation
    lets say you are selling your 2005 toyota 2.0D saloon
    1.est sale price / market price on which i was offered 05 2.0D saloon Rs 785000
    mpg 14 kmpl normal,16 kmpl economy mode or careful driving with throttle managed (means no sudden throttle to hi rpm)
    2. 1997 cc approx no under power issues with full loads plus AC on local or highways
    2.per km fuel cost is approx Rs 6.7
    3. mpg of SUVs Toyota LC 1986 with B3 10kmpl, Surf with 2L 10kmpl,Mitsubushi pajero with 4D56 10KMpl,fuel cost arrond Rs9.3 per km, thses are avg nos some tuned and carefully driven Suvs may do better or worse
    now see what cng powered car offers you
    toyota corolla 2005 se saloon mannual trans price value 900 to 1050k depending on condition i ve sold mine for 1030k 2005 mannual trans 43000 km on odo total stock
    1. 1597 cc approx
    2. avg on cng long drives 150 plus minus 10 kms with 55kg cylinder cost arround Rs 4.15
    3.on petrol 14kmpl (mine use to do) cost per km is approx Rs 6
    4.no under power issues with all conditions on cng or petrol plus AC and loads
    5.all 1.3 litre engine toyota and honda seriously lack power with cng on AC and 4 passanger load
    Does these little difference really means that you throw away your diesel cars ,its up to members to decide thread is meant for information and discussion not involving sentimental attachment to our 1.3 or any make n type rides

    Diesel powered cars were very popular. The popularity went down due to single factor i.e. increase in price of deisel
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    its because the cars were running completely off tune guzzling fuel blowing clouds of black smoke, when the fuel went expensive people followed the holy mechanic ustaad and paid him to install an EFI petrol engine with CNG.

    if they had correctly adjusted the diesel in the first place - people would have saved A TON of money and have had a better perspective on the price of fuel. Currently ask any former diesel owner and they will tell you that a corolla used to give 8 or 10 km/lit, but as fuel was cheap they did not care, if they had known and experienced that it supposed to give 15 km/lit, they would have a different view. It was plain ignorance in the first place.
