Diesel Vs. Gasoline, which should you buy?

There are many benefits to buying a diesel truck instead of gasoline. When diesel’s first came out, they were recognized as loud, dirty and awkward. This stereotype no longer exists. Today’s diesel trucks are quieter, cleaner and sleeker. Compared to gasoline engines, diesel offers increased fuel economy, cleaner emissions, increased towing power, easier maintenance and higher value retention.

Increased Fuel Economy: Diesel fuel contains more energy per gallon than gasoline, meaning that diesel engines can produce more power while using less fuel than a gasoline engine. It is for this reason that diesel engines average 20-30% better fuel economy than similar vehicles with gas engines. Example: If gas and diesel prices were identical, using a diesel engine would save the driver about $1,500 or more in fuel costs for every 100,000 miles of driving, according to industry estimates.

Cleaner Emissions: Technological advances have increased the cleanliness of diesel vehicles. High pressure direct injection systems make diesel engines more effective at reducing greenhouse gases during combustion. Special Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF)stops the majority of soot particles from being released into the air. Also, advances have reduced the amount of fuel required for combustion, meaning that diesels burn less fuel and therefore emit less carbon dioxide than gasoline vehicles.

Increased Towing Capacity: Increased torque is one of the biggest benefits to diesel engines. While gasoline cars generally have high rates of horsepower, diesels generally have far more torque. This enables them to pull or tow greater loads.

Easy Maintenance: Because diesel engines function differently than gasoline engines, they need servicing less frequently and require less complicated repairs. They also last longer on average than gasoline engines do. Gas units burn much hotter than diesel units, which reduces their lifespan. When properly cared for, diesel engines can run for more than 250,000 miles.

Value Retention: Many people may decide against diesel engines because of the initial higher cost of purchasing the vehicle. However, the increased fuel economy and reduced maintenance costs will pay for the engine over time. When diesel owners decide to trade in or sell their vehicle, they typically find that their vehicles are worth more than similar gas engine models. There is an increasing demand for used diesel vehicles as consumers realize the many benefits to owning this type of vehicle.

Looking for a DPF Back Exhaust?

Letter Logo

A Diesel Particulate Filter, sometimes called a DPF, is a device designed to remove diesel particulate matter or soot from the exhaust gas of a diesel engine. Wall flow diesel particulate filters usually remove 85% or more of the soot. A diesel powered vehicle equipped with functioning filter will emit no visible smoke from its exhaust pipe.

The new Rapid Flow High Performance Ceramic Coated Exhaust from Bully Dog Technologies uses a coating rather than stainless steel to produce a high quality exhaust product, higher quality in fact than any stainless steel.

Appearance: The ceramic coating has a very attractive luster that improves the appearance of the exhaust system.  It will maintain that luster for the life of the vehicle and beyond with minimal mainte­nance.  The polished aluminum look stands up to extreme temperatures and will not discolor like stainless or chrome.  Every exhaust also comes with a high quality ceramic coated exhaust tip to complete the package.

Performance: This coating provides better laminar flow than any other exhaust available in the aftermarket whether it is stainless steel, a larger diameter, or dual. This coating greatly reduces thermal radiation to take exhaust flow to a near maximum.

Longevity: The coating greatly protects the substrate against thermal fatigue and corrosion. The coating comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Cat Back or Turbo Back Exhaust System… Which is right for your diesel truck?

Intake Exhaust Diagram

At OCDiesel.com, we sell all types of exhaust systems. But which is the right one for you? It all depends on how you use your diesel truck. The two most common types of exhaust systems would be Cat Back and Turbo Back.

Cat Back refers to the portion of the exhaust system from the outlet of the catalytic converter to the final vent to open air. Cat Back systems generally include the pipe from the converter to the muffler, the muffler, and the final length of pipe to open air. Cat Back exhaust systems are a very popular aftermarket performance enhancement. They generally use larger diameter pipe than the stock system. Good systems will have mandrel-bent turns that allow the exhaust gas to exit with as little back pressure as possible.

Turbo Back refers to the part of the exhaust system from the outlet of a turbocharger to the final vent to open air. Turbo Back systems are generally produced as aftermarket performance systems for cars with turbochargers. Some Turbo Back systems replace stock catalytic converters with others having less flow restriction.

What’s the deal with Ceramic Coated Exhausts and Tips?

BullyDogLogo

OC Diesel now carries Bully Dog’s Ceramic Coated Exhausts with Tips! But what’s the deal with ceramic coating, is it a superior or inferior product?

Internal engine components are made from dissimilar metals. And due to the lack of molding similarities of these components, they absorb and dissipate heat at different cycling periods. This is where ceramic coating comes in. A ceramic coat covers all the dissimilar metals and makes them uniform. This protects and cools the engines internal and external components and contributes to noticeable horsepower and performance gains.

The ceramic coating provides better laminar flow than any other exhaust available in the aftermarket whether in be stainless steel, a larger diameter, or dual. This coating greatly reduces thermal radiation to take exhaust flow to a near maximum.

The ceramic coating has a very attractive luster that improves the appearance of the exhaust system. It will maintain that luster for the life of the vehicle and beyond with minimal maintenance. Even with extreme temperatures the coating will not experience bluing or yellowing like stainless or chrome.
