GENERAL INFORMATION

If you think of transition to the diesel, but do not know how to look after him the hands, then at once we will tell that is not more difficult to support the diesel in good shape the petrol engine at all.

Diesel cars are famous for the durability, but it does not mean at all that it is not required to show care of them.

The prices of used diesel cars in the West fall. It is connected with the fact that long time the sales volume of new diesel cars was very high and therefore in the market of used cars their large number now. New diesel cars are much more expensive equivalent to them in parameters of petrol fellows. Besides, there passed that time when a diesel row, habitual today for us, was exhausted only by one model. Today producers are able to deliver the diesels meeting the highest requirements of the market.

Country regrets are worthy if such are available in which diesel fuel costs equally with gasoline or even exceeds it. But even in this case you will be the winner as at diesel cars, as a rule, higher service life, but only provided that you will have a big annual run. Any economy is impossible only at small annual run. You save on spark plugs though it is clear that when using spark plugs with frequency of replacement of 60 thousand km economy on them will be small. At the same time you will lose on more frequent replacement of oil and the filter.
