Yes, diesel trucks generally get much better gas mileage than regular gas trucks. They even sometimes get better gas mileage than hybrid trucks.
It obviously depends on the cars being compared but generally Diesel provides better gas mileage.
You get much better gas mileage from diesel, but environmentalists don't like how dirty the exhaust from diesel is.
It better not get good GAS MPG because the t444e is a diesel motor
Yes, they get better mileage, more torque, and are cleaner burning. You can tow twice that with a diesel pickup than you could with a gas pickup. Diesel cars get amazing mileage. 55mpg for a volkswagen Jetta TDI.
----- 1/15/09 ----- It depends on which engine it has, gas or diesel. Generally speaking the diesel will get better gas mileage, but has higher fuel and maintenance costs. Need more info.......... (which engine, automatic or manual transmission)
Are diesel engines better than gas engines is sort of a yes and no question. Diesel engines generally get better fuel mileage and last longer overall. But, gas engines are easier to maintain on your own and gasoline is much more readily available than diesel fuel is on the whole.
Diesels almost always get better mileage than gas engines, some like the Volkswagen diesel are very efficient. The fuel is quite a bit more expensive though so do some math first before buying. Compare the mileage estimate of the diesel and the price per gallon of fuel against the same data for the gas. The best solution would be a gas electric hybrid.
Gas mileage will be right about zero, because if you put gas in a diesel, you'll ruin it.
If your asking what vehicle or engine get the best mileage, it would have to be either a hybrid/4cyl. compact or a compact turbo diesel 4cyl./manual transmission. The diesel can actually get better economy is certain conditions than a hybrid/gas 4cyl.
Probably the best way to get better fuel mileage would be to get a tuner for it.
for any car to get better gas mileage get a better flowing intake and/or exhaust or get it tuned
400 miles to the gallon
The best way to find out the gas mileage on your diesel truck would be to go to the popularmechanics.com website. I don't know which year, make or model this particular truck is therefore the mileage would depend.
This was answered on an episode of Mythbusters, you get better gas mileage with the AC on.
Considering that a diesel pickup truck can't use gas I would say that there aren't any diesel trucks that get good gas mileage. If you were wondering which diesel truck gets the highest miles per gallon then I would say you should look at the Dodge Cummins diesel.
Some benefits of diesel trucks are: better gas mileage, less pollution, they are easier to maintain, the retain their value more, and they have a larger towing capacity.
Diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline because chambers are different. A diesel engine has better gas mileage.
that depends on the mileage on the truck, driver, outside conditions, speed and if it is gas or diesel. is it a 1500, 2500 or 3500?
Most are diesel powered stick shift models that are smaller and lighter than American cars.
Some cars have diesel engines because diesel engines give more mileage and diesel is cheaper than gasoline in some countries. In the UK diesel fuel costs more than gas but, because diesel engines give much better mileage (miles per gallon), people are still happy to pay more for the diesel fuel if they run diesel vehicles. Diesel engines last much longer and have much better torque at low revs than a petrol engine.
