Re: Why no gas SCUTs?
Well this has turned into quite a discussion
A. I like the pre emmission Yanmar diesel in the 2305.
B. In small GT's, my experience is the air cooled gas motors are more trouble free than water cooled.
C. It is truly sad what EPA emission standards have done to diesel truck motors. What was at one time a cheaper and more dependable power plant is now just the opposite. Last year when I was searching for a 3/4 ton truck I absolutely would not look at diesels due to the risk of diesel motor repair costs. A gasser has something go wrong and it is a few hundred dollars, a diesel has problems and it is a few thousands dollars and often many thousands of dollars. The 6.2 liter gas motor in my F250 Super Duty is OK, with the 4.30 rear end most of the time. A month ago I was hauling 3 full cord of firewood in my 18' trailer going up a very steep grade and it was down to 25 MPH at the top of the hill but then one only encounters a situation like that .001% of the time.
