Diesel vs Gas

Diesel-powered vehicles are rapidly taking over the streets of Newport Beach, Rancho Santa Margarita, and Mission Viejo and for good reason. This fluid has gained popularity in the automotive industry as being responsible for new and improved performances for new Volkswagen vehicles. But many drivers find themselves wondering what exactly makes it different from regular gas?

Fortunately, Norm Reeves Volkswagen Irvine is here to answer that question and give you a reason to upgrade to a diesel-powered car with our comparison of diesel vs. gas below. 

Volkswagen TDI

New and Improved Fluid

Diesel fuel gets a bad reputation for being the loud and dirty brother of regular gasoline. As a result, drivers tended to shift away from vehicles that require this fluid. However, today, that’s no longer the case. Certain mandates have required diesel-powered vehicles to run quietly and produce cleaner emissions.

Boost in Performance

Trucks are the most common vehicle to run on diesel fuel and for good reason. Diesel fuel provides the boosted power that trucks need to take on the road. Overall, this power source works to deliver optimized torque, towing performance, and power that you won’t see with regular gas to provide a more capable performance.

Enhanced Efficiency

But don’t let its helping hand in boosting performance fool you. Diesel fuel helps your vehicle to operate efficiently for improved fuel economy. For vehicles powered by diesel, the combustion process is different from gas-powered cars. Instead of mixing the air with the substances at the beginning, the air is brought to the top of the cylinder first and compressed until it hits an igniting point. From there, fuel is injected into the cylinders as a small mist. Simply put, this process allows diesel fuel to be used in a miniscule amount to provide greater efficiency than regular gas.  

Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel

For Volkswagen models, diesel performance is available with almost every vehicle. With the TDI Clean Diesel engines, you’ll get the enhanced performance you can expect from a diesel engine. However, the driving experience is optimized with multiple technologies and internal systems to provide even more power and efficiency.

Vehicles Are Still the Same

Today, diesel fuel is no longer limited to just trucks. With the Volkswagen TDI Clean Diesel engines in VW models and alternative engines for other vehicles, you’ll be able to enjoy the exceptional performance that modern diesel can deliver. Best of all, you won’t have to sacrifice your interior features and design to get it.

In the automotive world, diesel vs. gas is a common debate among drivers. But just because we’re used to one doesn’t mean we can’t switch and take advantage of the benefits of the other. Diesel is becoming an increasingly popular fuel source and can now be seen in a variety of vehicles, including the newest Volkswagen lineup at Norm Reeves Volkswagen in Irvine.
