"I've had trucks with 4000 hrs and 3 years old that were beyond economical repair due to neglect but looked after machines 15 years old with 16k hrs plus and still run like a Swiss watch and capable of working all day every day because they have been maintained properly, to excess even.

"NOx poising issues associated with diesel engine emissions started the downward trend. Diesel emission clean up (NOx, smoke, soot, etc)standards started the ball rolling and as a result diesel fuel pricing became more expensive that a gallon of gasoline - before all this diesel fuel used to be about 25% lower than gasoline (aka petrol in some areas) and today it is a bit higher than gasoline..".
