Diesel Fuel Utilization is On the Rise

What distinguishes diesel fuel from the perennial gasoline standard, and what can it mean for the future of the Land Rover and Range Rover drive-time experience? For one, diesel fuel is one of the most efficient in use today. It is produced using a process less intensive than traditional gas, and diesel doesn't use a spark to ignite, rather relying on inlet air mixture compression followed by fuel injection and other heating elements.

So, diesel's innately high energy density and thermodynamic efficiency, when combined with the proper compression-ignition diesel engine, means that a relative quantity of diesel fuel, as compared to gas, lasts longer and takes a vehicle further. And that directly translates into improved city, highway, and combined mileage, and appreciably reduced emissions.

There's a performance takeaway, too. Consider the Land Rover Td6 diesel engine versus a standard gasoline-driven V6. With the former's diesel-fueled, comparatively enhanced maximum torque at a lower rpm, you can take advantage of a more efficient use of power toward the optimization of traction.

But when it comes down to it, the advantages of this flexible fuel are best experienced from behind the wheel of a diesel engine-equipped Land Rover. Stop by and visit us for a test drive at 10150 Southwest Freeway, and we'll be happy to show you the diesel difference.
