Diesel vs Gasoline

In the Philippines, cars owners are divided into two – either you ride a diesel or a gasoline. People who own a diesel would usually brag about the fuel economy diesels give. While those who own gasoline run cars usually say that they their cars have better quality over time because of their fuel type. Regardless, what really are the benefits of one over the other?



Diesel cars are well built. They have superior technology that give them great speed and endurance. So, if you’re looking for a car that can withstand the hustle and bustle of daily life, diesel cars are a better option for you. However, if you’re just getting a car for your daily errands, then a gasoline car is your best bet. Since filters of diesel cars can get clogged if not driven fast from time to time.



If your main concern is the car’s price tag, then we advise that you get a gasoline. However, keep in mind that you’ll have to maintain your car. And if you ask most maintenance shops, they usually charge lower change oils for diesel cars.


Resale value

Since diesel cars are more heavy duty and are more fuel efficient, they can usually be sold for a much higher price as compared to selling a gasoline car. However, this is of course still dependent on whether your car is well maintained or not.
