While looking for the right truck, the age old question is regularly pondered by many men. Which should I choose? A truck with a Gas or Diesel engine . If you are looking for power, “Tim the Tool Man Taylor” maybe said it better than anyone else. “Need More Power” If you are looking for a truck to carry or pull large loads, a diesel engine is more suited for the task. Gas Engine trucks are better for the guy who does not carry heavy loads, uses his truck more like a car and plans to trade it in at 100,000 miles. Diesels are built for longevity. Fuel EconomyAdvantage: Diesel Diesel fuel has a higher energy density than gasoline. One gallon of diesel contains approximately 147,000 BTUs of energy, while a gallon of gasoline only has 125,000 BTUs. This means it takes more gasoline to equal the power output of diesel, making diesel engines more efficient per gallon of fuel burned. Also, because diesel engines use the more efficient direct fuel-injection method (fuel injected directly into cylinder) compared to the port fuel-injection setup in gas engines where gas is mixed with incoming air in the intake manifold, the diesel system has little wasted or unburned fuel. Diesels also use about one third as much fuel at idle as gasoline units. Even though there are no official EPA-mileage figures for 3⁄4-ton and bigger trucks, we've seen diesels get six to eight more mpg than similar-weight gas pickups. Over the life of the truck, this advantage could be significant, especially if you drive a lot of miles.

Dodge, Ford, and GM learned long ago they were better off buying diesel technology from experts such as Cummins, International, and Isuzu than spending tons of money developing it themselves. These manufacturers all have years of experience building heavy-duty, over-the-road diesels that have to log 100,000 miles a year for years on end, routinely haul heavy loads and may have to idle for days at a time. Think of the diesel engines found in GM, Ford, and Dodge pickups and SUVs as mini big-rig engines. The average gas engine is good for only around 125,000 miles before needing a rebuild and isn't designed to constantly pull a heavy load. A diesel can go more than three times this amount before needing an overhaul.

Finding an Expert Mechanic What is an Expert? An expert is a person with extensive knowledge and/or ability based on research, experience or occupation in their field. It is said that it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert in any field but I believe for a mechanic that those hours are doubled to obtain that type of mastery. From the words of Albert Einstein, “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” When a mechanic truly understands how each system works and how they all work together, an expert mechanic is born. There are many systems working in a motor vehicle. These systems are regularly updated by manufacturers to become more efficient or provide extensive features each year. Regular education and new tools are required to stay up to date with regularly changing technology. With that being said, if you are looking for a mechanic to fix your truck, it is recommended to locate a facility that specializes in all aspects of trucks. Those facilities posses the proper tools and diagnostic equipment required to diagnose and fix your truck efficiently and effectively. These facilities generally have diesel and gas technicians that have ASE certification. For those who don't know, ASE Certification ( National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) provides mechanics with certifications of mastery in all areas of mechanics. (It's similar to having a masters degree in a particular field) These certifications, just like degrees, certify mastery in specific areas. For example: Brakes, Diesel Engines, Suspensions, etc. Truck mechanics, in particular, require more mastery of the mechanic field. As trucks and equipment are much larger than a standard size car, so are the parts and tools used to fix them. A good truck mechanic requires extensive knowledge of diesel engines, gas engines, hydraulic systems, electrical systems, preventative maintenance as well as the ability to ensure safety and performance of all the vehicles they work on. These mechanics play an essential role for the construction, municipalities, and anything that requires a truck for transport. So how do you determine if the mechanic you chose is a mechanic with that type of expertise? It was also Albert Einstein who said, “The only source of knowledge is experience”. Scott's Mobile Repair has been in business for over 12 years specializing in all aspects of truck repair. Owner, Scott Woodis, is an expert diesel and gas mechanic with over 20 years experience. His team of expert technicians lead the industry servicing many businesses and municipalities located in Northern RI.

gift for a man
It's that time of year again. Holiday Shopping… The hustle and bustle of finding the right gift for the people that you love can be troubling. Hours spent fighting the crowds, looking and searching for just the right gift can undo the calmest of us all. Why go through all that drama if you can get the perfect gift in much less time? For all the men in your life, instead of struggling to find a new shirt he might not like, or a watch he may never use, why not buy something he can use all year? Something truly useful. What could this amazing gift be? It's simple. Preventative Maintenance for his truck. In a nutshell, MEN LOVE THEIR TRUCKS. There have been proven studies that show men enjoy the reliability and the power that only their truck's provide them. In a recent study, it showed that 64% of truck owner felt that their trucks were a reflection of their own personality. A man's truck is his tool for hauling wood, transporting construction supplies, hunting, or even a quick stop at Dunkin Donuts. If you see his truck, chances are he's not far away. Why Preventative Maintenance? Preventative Maintenance is the key to keeping a truck starting every time he turns the key. Without it, at some point, the truck will fail to run. Unfortunately, an oil change, flushing the radiator, adding new coolant, changing belts, clamps and hoses among other things are put off until it is too late. Give all the men in your life the gift that will continue to give all year long. Contact Scott's Mobile Repair for a gift certificate this holiday season.
