Cars Q&A

Hi, I wanted to know what will happen to a diesel engine if I don't use it daily( probably 300 km per month). Many people suggested that a diesel engine should be run more (almost everyday). I want to know, which one( petrol/Diesel engine) requires more maintenance? Regards, Sampath Regards, Sampath

Expert`s comment:

If you start the vehicle and keep it in dile for about 25 mins every three days once is good enough to keep it in running condition. Aalso ensure parking place is free from rodents, if there is problem of rodents, always advisable to check rubber hoses and wiring connections.
