Diesel for Power and Safety

Diesel-powered trucks are the perfect cocktail of power and safety. First comes the power portion of these machines. Whether you favor a GMC, Chevy, Dodge or Ford with diesel under the hood, there’s simply more “workhorse” in your horse power. They’re designed with ruggedness in mind and built to hold up against high compression. Due to this, they go longer than other forms of fuel vehicles before needing maintenance or repairs.

Another side effect of diesel design is simply the way fuel is burned, delivering more torque to the driveshaft compared to gas engines. This makes modern diesel trucks faster than their “competitors,” from a zero to sixty standpoint. There’s a reason diesel-powered rigs can tow gas-powered vehicles without skimping on fuel economy but the reverse isn’t true. Built for towing and hauling, weekend warriors and drivers who depend on their trucks as part of their crew can greatly benefit from this type of power (not to mention fuel savings).

The Safety Factor

You probably wouldn’t dream of lighting a match anywhere near a gas station or gas can, and with good reason—but if you’re standing near a can containing diesel gas, go ahead and light up. Gasoline is a flammable, but you can actually put out a match in diesel fuel without any fear of a spark. The only way diesel gas explodes like regular gasoline is when it’s under very high pressure, but for the most part that doesn’t happen in a collision. Due to the spark factor (or lack thereof) diesel vehicles are simply safer in a collision. Additionally, diesel produces less carbon monoxide than gasoline, which is a factor in the usage of diesel in large boats. CO poisoning is silent but deadly and although it’s not a common cause of death, that’s little comfort to those who have lost a loved one to CO poisoning. Having diesel fuel almost completely removes that risk.

Military Backing

In addition to better fuel efficiency, a number of military vehicles use diesel fuel because it’s safer in dangerous zones. The Navy in particular only wants diesel machines inside the boats (and powering boats) because anything else is a risk factor. Sure, service men and women are often in much more trying circumstances than citizens, but it’s wise to consider why the military is so adamantly pro-diesel fuel. The side perks aren’t anything to scoff at, either.

Diesel has more usable energy than gas, resulting in overall better fuel economy. Better mileage is also a factor given, since diesel delivers 25-30 percent better fuel economy than their gas counterparts. There are also no spark plugs or distributors in diesel engines, meaning no tune-ups for these parts are in order and less time is spent at the mechanic shop. If it’s safety and power you’re after, along with a little money-saving incentives, nothing beats a diesel rig—plus, you might just get the satisfaction of hauling one of your gas-loyal buddies out of a tough situation (and have the opportunity to recruit another person to the diesel family).
