The plane truth about diesel fuel
from The Globe and Mail
If you're a doubter who still believe that diesels may be okay for trucks and buses but not for cars, how do you feel about diesel-powered aircraft? Cessna has announced it’s dropping the turbocharged gasoline piston engine from its popular 182 Skylane and replacing it with a four-cylinder diesel. Cessna says the diesel, from the French company SMA, is 42 per cent more fuel-efficient than the gasoline engine, more reliable and quieter, too.
