    there is this perception, that diesel engines are more water-resistant than gas engines.
    with floodwaters knocking on my door, i was able to drive my diesel home during ondoy..
    partly true but it depends on the driver's skill. ginagawang boat ng mga PUJ drivers sa paglusong sa baha. when i was stuying may nasakyan akong PUJ na halos nasa step ladder na yung tubig pero sige pa rin at nakalusong naman.

    yang mga PUJ na yan.. walang electronics yan. "kahit ilubog pa ang makina niyan sa tubig, basta may hangin at krudo, ay hindi titigil yan."

    my diesel? i attribute my ondoy success more on prayer than on skill. but thank you for the pa-segway compliment.
    heh heh.

    Pwede naman i-waterproof ang electronics and electricals ng kahit anong gasoline or diesel engines. Electronic grade silicon sealant at heat shrink electrical insulation lang katapat nyan. Pwede diy kaso better sa casa ipagawa for the sake of the warranty. Yung fuse/relay boxes, ecu, tcm and bcm pwede din i-encase sa waterproof enclosures. Mahal lang nga aabutin. At kung talagang tatawid ka ng ilog lagay ka ng snorkel.

    Common diesel engines are easier to troubleshoot than gasoline engines. It is heavier built due to its high torque and compression. This makes it more durable. Sample na lang ang diesel engines ng PUJ's na until now naaasahan.

    Agree paps, pero yung sensors and yung connection sa injector sa makina mismo, mukhang mahirap i-seal.

    Yan yung oldschool, pero not the CRDi's. Old school gasoline engines are still easier to troubleshoot and repair compared with oldschool diesels.

    Yung kapitbahay namin, ino-overhaul ang 4k engine nya, mga kalahating araw lang ata kailangan. Nagpalit ng piston rings file at sand paper lang haha!

    And the question is, ilang beses mo ba ilulusong sasakyan mo sa baha na abot makina? Kung sa tingin mo more than 10x a year, hanap ka na ng ibang daanan or tirahan.

    Decided to stretch my budget to 1.250M and included the base Forester & XV in the choices.

    Test-driven both and felt that the Forester's ride was on the bumpy side (wifey felt dizzy sitting at the back). The XV's ride is softer but having 3 people ride at the back felt cramped. Size vs. comfort. Now I'm really confused...
