You pay extra for it, then pay extra for the fuel. Yep-Diesels suck.

Lol! My cousins boyfriend always complained that about her Ford 7.3 IDI truck and how poorly it ran (obviously he was not raised on a farm with diesel tractors and thought everything was like his rice burner). He asked me to help tune it up. I told him to change the spark plugs and wires while I went to get some stuff from inside. When I came out dumba$$ was pulling out one of the injectors!

There is a 100% certainty of impossibility in this statement. Sir.

Anyone ever seen a two-stroke diesel?

I have (and you have too). They're not carbureted though.

The worlds most powerful diesel, in a Mearsk container ship makes 109,000 HP and is a 2 stroke diesel.

That's correct. Most locomotives (those made by GE, anyway) are two-stroke diesels also.

Can that ship go to most ports, or is it limited to high tech crane ports
that are designed to handle it? Can it go through Panama Canal?
