Diesel engine in the future

Analyses about the future of the Diesel engine in the beackground of new technology and optimizing the fuel supplay after Peak Oil.



  Decades of rentability calculations turn over


Since the Diesel engine is popular, there are regular in car magazines calculations under what conditions is the Diesel engine pays off against the gasoline engine.

  • Higher price of the Diesel engine
  • Less fuel consumption
  • Different taxes
The result of such calculations is most times a number of km per year between 10,000 and 20,000. At less, the gasoline engine is cheaper, at more the Diesel engine.

But now are the plug-in hybridcars coming. This new drive concept changes the rentability of the Diesel engine.
  • The generator of a plug-in hybrid is never used with partial load
  • Most km are driven electric only
The long distance commuter with 30,000 km a year was until now sure a Diesel driver. But what happens, when he drives 27.000 km a year electric only? Recharge at home at night time, recharge at the work place, only the long trip in the holidays with the ICE internal combustion engine.

The Diesel was never profitable at only 3000km a year, special if there is no more advantage at the partial load efficiency,

  The Diesel engine as a food competitor


Hydrogen + Biomass = Methanol, for humans inedible. The Diesel is with vegetable oil a direct competitor for humans at food.



  2008 the countdown for electric mobility runs


A revolution is coming as significant as the change from horse cabs to cars. How can we accelerate the countdown to electric mobility?

Loses the fuel cell against the Methanol engine
There is a dfifference between sending some huamns to the moon or to develop a car for a sales woman with 1000.-EUR minimum wage. A cost anaylsis of the fuel cell.


Higher city toll for gasoline guzzlers
It is the luxury class where all fundamental new developments at cars had been the first time set in and later gradual found the way to small cars.


Prices at fuels turn over
From 1988 to 2018 in only 30 years is a complete turn over of the prices at fuels for cars. Numbers based on German prices and solar radiation.


Energy efficiency of cars
Compare of different propulsion systems in the same car, ICE internal combustion engine vs electric power from fuel, coal to liquid, bimass, wind energy, solar energy.


Load speed
How many km range can be per hour load time or refueling put in the batteries or in the tanks? An important criteria for reference number vehicles.


Eat my dirt
Mobility with ICE internal combustion engines is something very aggressive. You have to be under all circumstances faster than the others, otherwise You will eat their dirt.




Analysis lead price
Analysts always claim to hear the gras growing, but they pretend not to hear 60 million electric scooters in China. The true reason for the high lead price.


Coal liquification
Compare of coal liquification for the production of liquid fuels vs making electric power out of coal and the usage in vehicles with electric propulsion.


Biofuel furtherance
US$ 15 billion had been sent out 2007 in the OECD for the furtherance of biofuels. Just after military expenses the most ridiculous and dangerous expenses.


Chrysler car stock
Sell recommendation! The action Let's refuel America is an indicator, that Chrysler considers the situation on the oil market as a short time lasting speculation bubble
