Learning The Pros & Cons Between Diesel Vs. Gas Engines In Ventura

Are you in the market for a pre-owned pickup truck in the Ventura, California area? With a large inventory of makes and models to pick from, the STA Auto Group has the stock you need, making it easy to find a used pick up truck for sale that fits with your needs. All you'll have to do is decide between engine types - Diesel or Gasoline.

What's The Difference Between Diesel And Gasoline

Will you choose the high powered diesel or the low-cost gasoline engine? When it comes to the initial cost, gasoline engines take the prize. Gasoline fuel costs less than diesel, saving you money at the pump. Not to mention that gasoline engines and transmissions are a simpler design, meaning they cost less to manufacture.

But while you save on the initial price of gas, you save on fuel economy. Diesel engines can travel anywhere from 20-35% farther than a gallon of gasoline. So even though gas engines might cost less at the pump, the cost per mile for driving around a diesel engine will still end up being less.

And if you're trying to save fuel, you'll lose on power. While gasoline engines might save you money, diesel engines have higher towing control over their gasoline counterparts. Gasoline engines can still tow, but their efficiency can't compete with the raw power of a diesel engine. If you're in the market for hauling power, then you'll want to go for a diesel engine.
