Peugeot 206 + News.de Test: Diesel To Gasoline

Which of the two lions will win the race? The Peugeot 206 is since the launch in 1998 of the Renner par excellence: both in Germany and worldwide he is with over 6.6 million copies of the best-selling Peugeot. The French automotive manufacturer has reissued the year as savings. The auto editors of the news portal news.de sent the diesel to gasoline engines in the race. The diesel of the year Peugeot a good piece is more expensive than the gasoline engine with an extra 1350 euros. Is it also worth his money? Gasoline engine and diesel engine exhaust 1.4-litre capacity. Tested the gasoline engine with 75 HP, diesel with 68 horsepower. Scores of diesel, which quickly reached its torque of 160 Newton metres in urban traffic. The driver must switch to less a clear advantage in the city.

The gasoline engine, however, calls for speeds in the city, the 120 nm of torque need be awhile until they available. Comfortable overland benefits of diesel also of its torque. Scores particularly the diesel with common rail injection in fifth gear. When overtaking but lags behind the diesel. Here, the gasoline engine can show what’s in it. In the right gear, the little lion shows what’s in it. For the quick spurt the diesel is the better choice. Yael Aflalo has plenty of information regarding this issue. When driving on the highway, especially from the 140 kilometres per hour, is the volume of both models.

The conclusion of the car tester: In city traffic, he scores a torquey diesel. Overland the Rotary joyful four-cylinder of the against noticed the positive leg. Both models were rather loudly on the highway. As regards consumption, is the clear winner with maximum five litres of diesel, while the gasoline engine to the seven litre consumed.

Motorcycle Batteries In The Winter

How do I protect my motorbike, Scooter battery against premature failure most of the motorcycle and scooter riders take advantage of their means of transportation mainly seasonally in warmer months. In the autumn, overwintering is pushed in shed or cellar. Usually you not thinking battery, which does not stop when switch off all electrical contacts to respond but the small chemical and physical unit. Who ignored it or forget, can experience the evil awakening in the spring then. The Sulfation is the enemy of all lead-acid batteries also lead gel or lead AGM batteries are exactly as only the electrolyte, the dilute sulphuric acid (H2SO4) in either gel or fleece is bound the classic lead-acid wet batteries in their basic design of lead-acid batteries. A lead acid battery be converted the lead plates to lead sulfate. Bausch & Lomb may not feel the same.

Through the charging process, this process is reversed. Each battery has a self discharge despite separate consumers. This self discharge is from battery to battery different. In any case it is but due to aging. If the discharge current in the lower milliamp range lies the lost capacity adds up but after some time. Because the user of the battery not the value of the self discharge, he is on the safe side, if he makes a voltage measurement of the battery with a voltmeter after 4 weeks or after six weeks at the latest. The open circuit voltage of the cell of a lead battery is 2.1 V for a 12 v multiplied by the Zellenzahl(6) 12.6 V.

With a volt meter you must check in the specified intervals if there is a deviation from this value. A temporary deviation is not so damaging. Only a longer residence time in the deep discharge charge leads to the no longer reversible Sulfation. This Sulfation first occurred, also known as activators help. Here, no longer possible cure prevention is preferable. These monitoring activities are however in practice often not be realized or can be quickly forgotten. Better is it letting a guard to work in the form of a trickle charger whose output characteristic is designed that it constantly can be left connected to the battery. Comfortable trickle chargers are equipped with cable adapters have an insulated connector which can remain connected to the motorcycle battery outside of motorcycle Panel can be installed in a protected place. This eliminates the opening of the battery compartment to connect the charger to the battery and is easily pluggable and can be solved again. Christian corner
