In recent times, vehicle owners have been exhibiting their penchant for diesel cars. Manufacturers are also pushing the envelope and trying to bring enhanced features in their vehicles to match the requirements of customers. Apart from mileage and price, vehicle owners are also on the lookout for an upscale build with ravishing exteriors and interiors. Below is an insight on the most popular diesel powered cars which are revered for their exquisite body styles, and offer a tempting excitement. Let’s read the article of Rick Popely on how he describes Diesel Cars.
Do You Have to Care For a Diesel Car Differently Than a Gasoline Car?
Diesel engines may require more frequent oil changes and fuel filter changes than gasoline models, and some diesels may also require periodic replenishing of diesel exhaust fluid (urea), which reduces emissions of nitrous oxide. For the most part, though, diesels follow the same maintenance schedule as gas engines.
Volkswagen, for example, says the oil and filter should be changed every 10,000 miles on its diesel models — same as the gas versions. However, the schedule for diesels also calls for a fuel filter change every 20,000 miles. In addition, the diesels available in the Passat and Touareg need a urea tank refill every 10,000 miles (the 2.0-liter TDI engine in other models doesn’t). Volkswagen provides free maintenance the first three years/36,000 miles, so the first round or two of diesel maintenance is on the house.

Anyhow most of the car owners of Diesel cars says that the maintenance of diesel cars are quite high and diesel cars produce a lot of carbon that hurts our environment. Let’s read the article of SIPHO KINGS
Local companies doing little to lower carbon emissions
The top 100 companies on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in this year’s Carbon Disclosure Project were lauded for having the world’s second-highest disclosure rate. Seventy-nine companies responded to questionnaires about their greenhouse gas emissions. But the report also found that their total emissions had gone up in 2013.
This is despite many having taken part in the last six years of the project with voluntary targets in place to reduce their energy intensity and emissions. Read the article of Sipho Kings here: http://mg.co.za/article/2013-11-28-local-companies-doing-little-to-lower-carbon-emissions
Most drivers know that they could be facing something serious when the dreaded check engine light flicks on. But do you really know why that light is there? Although at the time it may seem like a ploy by repair shops to dip into your wallet, check engine lights were established for an important reason. Check engine lights are actually designed to alert drivers to computer-monitored emissions problems as it is part of the vehicle’s emission system. Now a standard feature in vehicles, check engine lights have become a valuable part of keeping emissions controlled. With so many vehicles on the road these days, it is essential that emissions are monitored and standards are followed to keep vehicles running smoothly and our environment healthier.
