Diesel VS Petrol VS LPG

57332 3X4 580X773For many serious 4WD enthusiasts there is no question that diesel is the fuel of choice. Diesel 4WDs are favoured not only due to their known reliability, but also due to their cost effectiveness and availability on long hauls. Diesel engines are also a popular choice because of the multitude of power-up options available on the market today.


For those who love a petrol engine, there is good reason for it. Most petrol engines give a bigger kick in the throttle when compared to diesel engines and also give a quieter and smoother operation. While petrol engines do provide you with extra power they are also known for sucking dry the fuel tank more quickly.


Although LPG has been considered to have poor economy figures over the last few years, there is now a new-age of injected LPG systems that are hitting the market hard. One of the main setbacks of LPG is its availability, especially when you venture further away from metro areas, but when you couple an LPG system with a back-up you will definitely save some coin in the long run.
