Dear dragongtr,

To help the members of this thread get to know you a bit better please answer these questions to the best of your ability.

1. How many bon bons.....(rounded to the nearest BON BON) will ONE TOBY working hour purchase..... for your EX-WIFE? Never Married, never divorced
What about your GIRLFRIEND? Engaged, no girlfriend.
2. Are you gainfully employed? Yes
3. Who would win in a fight: your Jordan or Ed? Assume the fight takes place in Timmeh's living room...each is wearing the lingerie they wore the first time you HAD SEX with them...and each is armed with lobster fists of RAGE. Fight song is "Smoke on the water"... N/A
4. Did you finally get rid of your EX-GF at...the RECYCLING DEPOT? If so...did you receive 30 bucks in exchange? Yes, and no I didn't, had to pay, she wouldn't shut her damn mouth for even 5 minutes to con them into the 30 fee.
5. Why does Vancouver act like a third-world country and burn THEIR city down when...their team loses? Canadians, what do you expect.
6. If I were to ask you if your EX-GF is a saint, would your answer be the same as your answer to this question? How would your boyfriend answer that question.
7. Ever been injured during sex? Accidental injury, or something your partner intended to do?
8. Is it true that Chaney is not a real person but a composite of several personality types into an experimental beta-release of a forum admin AI? Yes.
9. If the answer to #4 was "no", why not? No one would willingly take her.
10. Your mom asks if you would be interested in a threesome with her best friend. Wat do? Hell No......
11. Do you 'member? No.
12. How many USB thumb drives do you own 15+
13. Ever sneeze and fart at the same time? No
14. What is the appeal of chicken and waffles? They ran out of bread.
15. How much is too much to pay for a bottle of beer? No such thing as too much for good beer.
16. Who would win in a fight: Kyle or Aku? Assume the fight takes place on the roof of the Lowes nearest to you. Kyle is armed with a aluminum trashcan lid shield and morning star made from a plunger handle, a dog choke collar, and E30 M3 piston. Aku is dual wielding nun-chucks made from copper pipe. Both are wearing gay.jpeg shirts. Fight song is "Pumped Up Kicks" by indie rock band Foster the People. Aku
17. Will Big Doug ever return to this thread? Already has under a different name....
18. Do you watch Glee? Hell No.

That tends to hurt the performance and cost far more as compared to a gasoline engine. Never mind the fact that the fuel also costs significantly more per gallon.





In fact Mazda's going the other way adapting gasoline engine technology to a diesel to try and build the lowest compression modern diesel at 14.1 compression.

The key enablers of being able to run a gasoline engine at 12:1 compression on 87 octane fuel are variable valve timing, direct gasoline fuel injection and modern electronic controls.

They have had gasoline engines running at 12:1 or greater in the past, but it absolutely required high octane fuels to prevent detonation/ auto ignition. The liquid fuel injection directly into the chamber has a cooling effect on the compressed air charge during the phase change.

Turbo diesel engines tend to make more torque, but they don't tend to rev as well, nor make as much power as an equivalent displacement gasoline engine.
well yes, much better durability results.

disagree, the 1.9 TDI motor is not bad at all.


Mazda is doing that to reduce NOx so that they don't have to run urea injection because people don't like having to fill up a urea bottle. in europe diesel compression ratios haven't dropped.

the direct injection is NOT for charge cooling, that would be what water/meth injection is for. the direct injection is so that the injection can be timed to prevent detonation, just like a diesel.

Turbo diesels are torquey, but by "power" i assume you mean horsepower, which is a calculated value only related to torque and RPM.

diesel has more energy per unit volume than gasoline, diesels also extract more power from that fuel because they can run super lean without any detonation (again, ignition timing).

The reason diesel is more expensive is because it gets taxed higher, because the majority of diesel is used by semi trucks who tear up the road (hence higher road use taxes on the fuel)

Europe is full of turbo diesels, and for good reason. pound for pound a diesel engine will be more efficient and go farther on a given amount of fuel.

the reason that diesel's aren't popular here is because back in the 70's GM adapted their normal gas big blocks to run on diesel... the extra force of combustion was destroying bottom ends.

Please do some more research before you just come in here and try to explain engine mechanics to me. as far as carbon monoxide emissions, diesels trounce gasoline engines, making them cleaner (especially once you add urea injection/a catalyzer for the NOx and other particulates)
