Diesel Stinking

What makes me sick is all my Diesel driving friends.



Hi, what makes me sick is your stinking diesel fumes. I think all prospective diesel vehicle buyers should be required to drive 1,000 miles behind a diesel vehicle with their fresh air vents open. Then decide how much you like to pretend that you're Joe Kenworth. To me this is like when you drive thousands of miles to see the Grand Canyon or the Delicate Arch, Etc. and some @$$ less than ten feet away from you, at this beautiful sight, lights up a stinking cigar.
The new diesels starting in 2011 use DEF and a catalytic converter. I had a 2007 F250 that was really stinky. With my 2012 F250, I cannot tell by the exhaust that it is a diesel at all. As a matter of fact my 2011 Taurus exhaust smells bad compared to the F250. Both of them are stored in the same garage.

If you drive one of them stinky diesels, you are usually in front and you aren't on the receiving end of bad exhaust

My cigars don't stink.

While diesel engines produce a lot of nasty stuff to make only a very small amount of carbon monoxide.

Buy a CO detector for $30 off Amazon and put it on your truck.

Complaining about "stinky" diesel engines can only mean that you are unfamiliar with the new "Clean Diesel" technology available in Mercedes and Dodge RAM vehicles: No odor, no smoke, great torque and great mileage.

Check them out, you will be surprised.

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with the 5.7 Hemi. It is a great all around vehicle. Recently while at the local dealership getting some work done I mentioned to the service manager that I was thinking of swapping for a new diesel GC. He said do not do that. They are having too many of them back in the shop for major warrenty work with the engines. He had two in the shop waiting for new engines to come in. I was disappointed to hear that.

guess ya haven't driven behind the Edo Diesel .... its emissions are steam and a little water. Since DEF, the gassers are the polluters.

My 2009 Dodge CTD is pre DEF and the only time you can smell anything is during a regeneration process at a traffic light. The exhaust pipe is as clean as the day it was new!

Hi, I do appreciate the new clean diesels, but we still have decades of old dirty diesels still on the road and they will still be on the road for decades to come, especially those who want to get their million miles worth out of them; Even though the rest of the vehicle will be virtually junk.
