Default Light weight Euro-diesels

Anybody know anything about that CH701 on Zenairs site that has a
mercedes smart Diesel in it?

It got me to poking around on some european website. I found the specs
for the ford 1.4 litre diesel sold over there. Not sure how the figures
size up to gas engines currently in use. Any Opinions?

I think if Ford would import the DuraTorq version of the Ranger into the
United States I'd hock a fair piece of my anatomy to buy one.

You say this over a diesel 4 banger? Give me a break!

The Europeans have good reason to make a good small diesel, with gas prices
high, and diesel prices low. Here in the US, the same can not be said.

Your statement may or may not be true, but I'm certainly not going to go
around wringing my hands over a 4 banger.

These engines are "Light weight" only for automotive use.
The 1l4 is a Peugeot design, you may choose a 1l6 (DV6 TED4) with the
same weigt and power up to [email protected]

I am not sure, but I read "around" 100kg for the engine. You still kneed
a PSRU.
I think you may have a 110HP engine for 120-130kg minimum. It is still
heavier than mogas engine.


Just for fun: with this type of engine, you may got 50mpg on car like
Toyota Corolla.
