Is this the WORST diesel statement you've seen in a while?

Analyze it, pick it apart....I've been told this by a guy who refers to 7.3 as the "7.3T," that it has been around for 60 years, and says there is a "new graphite aluminum 7.3" that I can't get him to elaborate on. Anyway, here's the comment....

Dont forget winning Lemans racing. Deisel is going nowhere I can assure you. Its a less combustable fuel which means the engine has to work harder to produce less. The way they make up for this and get the long life of them is keeping them at a low turn rate inside the engine. If the engine only turns 1000rpm constantly then its thousands less revolutions per minute which turns into less wear and tear. Deisels are slow vehicles and that why I dont prefer them. But as I said up there before I am getting older and appreciate them more because of the ability to buy one and the motor outlast the body (regardless of make)

I thought that one was pretty bad, but these are even worse.

Semi trucks dont use deisel because it is better or more effecient. They use it because the motors dont rotate parts like the gas engines do so every 200.000 miles it wont need a rebuild

Its all preference. What in the world do you use a big *** deisel truck for ? It sure as hell isnt gas mileage or effective HP applications
Trade 'em in, go gas!! No reason to own a diesel....nope, no reason at all.

I know where to start, it starts by saying the Diesel came first.

Diesel is what keep this country running... period. You can't move freight with a Prius.

Man people never cease to amaze me with just how dumb they are.

You should see the argument I had with this guy. It's unbelievable some of the stuff he was trying to say, and to get me believe. Unfortunately it took place in the comments section of a simple picture my girlfriend posted to facebook of a truck that was hooked to the sled yesterday at the Fass Diesel Nationals in Indy. Without being her friend, it can't be viewed.
