Rob its not really the fuel that gives you more torque but the operating principals. The diesel operates totally different than a gasoline engine just like a 2 cycle gas operates different than a 4 cycle gas engine.

Stroke and compression are typically very different. If you are wondering why everything isnt just diesel to start with its because a diesel is very heavy duty and was cost prohibitive in most applications. But now things are changing and they are becoming cheaper to build so you are seeing them in smaller applications.

I often wonder if we are going to start seeing cheaper built diesels that will have similar longevity to a gas.

Like I said, two different animals. Its about how the fuel ignites.

Fuels are pretty complex. Even in gas engines. Higher compression gas engines require slower burning fuel. AKA higher octane.
