Its hard enough to believe that diesel in your area is $3.50 a gal.

Cars use petrol (gasoline). Petrol is short for Petroleum which is gasoline. As for Diesel, cars like the BMW 335d, VW Jetta TDI, etc. How could you not know that some cars use diesel? And how could not know that Petrol (Petroleum) is gasoline?

Any of the two is fine as long as it can drive my car. But if I have to pick, I much rather use gasoline/petroleum since my car's engine can run on either regular, unleaded, and high octane so I can fill the tank up with whatever is available. And I find engines that run on gas/petrol are very much easy to maintain.

Diesel's a lot cheaper here compared to gasoline but most of the diesel engines I've seen require too much maintenance and uses up too much fuel. So I end up spending a lot to keep it running in good condition.

My mom has three vans for business use, the hi-ace and MB that are diesel powered, and the L-300 which runs on gas. The first two has a lot of power but quite a guzzler and easy to drive. On the other hand, the L-300 has a much better fuel mileage, but driving it is more like a workout, especially on my arms, and it give a new meaning to the word "power-steering".

I will correct you by sentence.

Cars with an engine made for diesel use diesel fuel and cars that are make for petrol use petrol. No shit why do you think that I never said gas, petrol and/or diesel at all in my post. I know what a diesel car sounds like with out reading the emblems. Diesel needs a far higher compression ratio than a gas engine can generate to ignite the fuel so a diesel engine with gas would have detonation and a gas engine would most likely seize over time with all the accumulated deposits in the engine or not start with clogged fuel injectors. Same as sentence 2 no shit.

Diesel fuel will not even run in a conventional petroleum car at all. . You do know that diesel fuel is pretty much home heating oil right? Why else do you think diesels can run on straight vegi oil.
