Many are the people who always doubt whether a diesel car pollutes more than a gasoline one or vice versa. In itself, in Spain, there was a greater number of diesel cars, until 2017, in which gasoline cars were exponentially increased. Next, we will tell you what type of car pollutes the most and what advantages one engine has over the other to make our next car choices.
Diesel and gasoline, which pollutes more?
In itself, types of diesel pollute much more, especially if they are old models. They pollute even four times more than gasoline since they emit levels of NO2 and particles in suspension at much higher levels. According to a study by the European Federation for Transport and Environment, diesel cars are largely responsible for the greenhouse effect, taking into account the entire life cycle of the car by auto for trade.
For a couple of years, we have not only chosen a vehicle according to whether it is cheaper or not but also by looking at which of them is more ecological. We know that we are destroying our planet and that CO2 emissions can affect our air quality and even health.
However, did you know that they are becoming more and more modern cars and can emit less pollution, despite being diesel? Now that diesel is less polluting than it was several decades ago, it can be even less toxic than gasoline. In short, the most modern types of diesel can pollute less than gasoline cars, having been equipped with particle filters and other gadgets to reduce pollution.
What is better?
We suggest other points of interest in each engine.
The advantages of the diesel engine are that it consumes much less than the gasoline engine, so it is much more successful for those people who want to save money at this point, especially for carriers. Furthermore, the fuel used is usually cheaper than gasoline. However, the price of a car with this type of engine is usually much higher, and they tend to be a bit slower as they have greater weight.
The advantage of a vehicle with a gasoline engine is that it is usually much cheaper than diesel vehicles, although these cars tend to suffer more breakdowns. However, repairs to a gasoline car tend to be cheaper than to a diesel engine. On the other hand, gasoline engines are quieter and tend to have much more efficient heating.
You must choose the engine that most assures you of a good value for money. Above all, be guided by the number of kilometers you are going to do and the needs you want to meet.
With regard to insurance, the cost will depend on the vehicle itself. It is not a variable that can excessively influence the price of your car policy, although it is best that you take information from a reliable insurance company.
