HONDA would KILL the Market..With Excellence,Most Likley take out the Barn Yard Mechanics (Heeloo AM WRECK)A Japanese manufacturer like Yamaha was to build a top notch 600c inline carpet cleaner in a streamline frame 100 Hp , reliable , plenty of fast heat off them 4 exhaust pipes , I for one would be in line for one .
The heat would be craxy hot and unstoppable comming off the heat exchange headers .
Diesels became popular in the early 80's cuz It cost Less..As it should be due to Less Refinement (if you believe the Oil Moguls) Every Swinging Dick bought them (me too) and THEN.....GUESS WHAT? The shit was not 30% less but 40% MORE!To get back on track of this question, the reason there are not as many diesel truck mounts is the same reason that there are as many diesel cars on the road.
Bottom Line is...If The Shit DONT BREAK..There's No Money in it!if there was a real market for diesel truck mounts every major manufacturer would be making them.
One reason is heat you don't have the high exhaust temps as you do with a gas engine.
so now you have to add another heat source or another over complicated HX system which seems to be the crux
of most of the current systems.
a couple of fringe cleaners on a bulletin board demanding diesel truck mounts they could never afford anyway is not enough demand.
on the other hand give me enough money and I can make what ever you want within the current laws of physics
The federal government also discourages diesel engines. Back in the 80's when the environmental movement began Europe passed laws encouraging the diesel as an answer to global warming because diesel has better MPG than gas. The US in all its great wisdom decided to do everything a** backwards from the rest of the world and decided to use gas and instead come out with the Emissions standards we have today and attempt to make the Gas engine cleaner and more efficient. (which hasn't really worked) My "89 dodge Omni did 35mpg, best car I ever owned, wish I could get another one. The little tin cans we have today are at best 42mpg with most cars still averaging 32mpg or less.Diesels became popular in the early 80's cuz It cost Less..As it should be due to Less Refinement (if you believe the Oil Moguls) Every Swinging Dick bought them (me too) and THEN.....GUESS WHAT?
