Pros & cons of buying diesel vs gasoline cars in the Philippines

You've landed on the page for Cars 2009 for sale on Philkotse.com - the leading automotive classified website in the Philippines. We strive to keep these pages up to date as much as possible so spam that refresh button to get the best possible deal on your next car!

There are two primary fuels that power cars in the Philippines: Gasoline and Diesel. Most Pick-up trucks and SUVs in the local market are powered by the latter, sedans and hatchbacks primarily use gasoline though. Both of these fuels have their own pros and cons with fans from both sides having their own good arguments for each of these.

We'll be listing the different pros and cons between buying a gasoline and diesel here for you to figure out if the car you're checking out is definitely the one for you.

Fuel Economy

The questions of efficiency always come to mind when considering whether to buy a Gasoline or Diesel car and as a matter of fact, there is no question that Diesel is the clear winner here.

In terms of energy capacity, Diesel packs around 30% more energy than the same amount in Gasoline. This equates to better power efficiency as it takes less Diesel to power and produces the same amount of energy compared to its rival.

Car dealerships will actually market this fact and feature their diesel models to be fuel misers.

Performance

This is a tricky subject, as the chemical component of diesel fuel is different from gasoline, their performance ratings vary depending on the applications they are required to perform in.

Diesel fuel may have more energy-packed within it, it is more inert than gasoline which can combust even with minimal compression. Diesel, on the other hand, requires a higher compression engine to even begin to become usable.

Most diesel vehicles require the use of turbos direct-injection technology for its horsepower rating to be at par with that of gasoline engines, the torque figures, however, benefit from the energy produced by diesel. Gas cars, on the contrary, do not need turbos for it to spool usable power but lag behind in the torque department.

Because of this diesel-powered engines are primarily used for heavy trucks and SUVs that require heavy hauling and benefit a lot from large torque figures. Check out our affordable deals in Cars for sale section to see what best suits your needs.

Cost

In the Philippines, Diesel fuel is significantly cheaper than Gasoline. This is because diesel is taxed by the government much lower than gas. Apart from the fuel economy savings you get whenever you drive your diesel vehicle, filling up on it at the pump would cost you much less as well.

Whatever scores diesel get for cost-effectiveness against gasoline is then given back during maintenance and servicing your car.

Diesel contains more energy within it, yes, but it also creates more emission residue than gasoline. Because of this, service schedule comes in at a much sooner time table than gasoline. You will have to replace emission filters and fuel filters more often and have your system cleaned and decarbonized.

Meanwhile, Gasoline has reached a point where the fuels are getting burned through combustion much more efficiently. Maintenance schedules can range from 10,000 to 20,000. By the time a gasoline car needs to have its oil and fitters changed, a diesel car would have had made its second one already.

Noise Vibration and Harshness (NVH)

If you're familiar with how a truck or jeepney sounds in idle or when revving up, then you know that Diesel cars' NVH levels cannot match the smooth idle and performance of gasoline cars.

Although diesel engine technology is continually improving, people who appreciate smooth idling and ride handling can always count on gasoline to do that.

So there you have it! The different pros and cons of diesel and gasoline engines. In the end, you have to ask yourself what your priorities are from your car. If you need it to haul cargo, Diesel might be the best bet. But if the simplicity of maintenance, pure horsepower rating and having a quiet ride is your thing, Gasoline is still the way.
