best engines and years for wvo


Are the 300 D and 300 SD engines both very good for wvo ? In the early or mid 80's ? What are the best engines for wvo in the 80's and 90's ?


I've been running 240D and

I've been running 240D and 300SD cars for years on biodiesel. I hear they are the best for WVO, as the big BOSCH injection pumps are very rugged and can handle the high viscosity that eventually wrecks other makes.

The 300SD changed to a 6-cyl in 1986, so the 81-85 5 cyl is the one you want. Turbocharged helps.

Nice engines...have fun.
