Ford Mustang Diesel 2011
Europe promotes environment-friendly diesel engines, forcing the American car manufacturer Ford to change its global strategy. Especially, for the European market they plan to bring small cars to Europe and this provision applies to the beberaga countries in the world.
More than that, Chevrolet also announced it will market the Camaro to market in the continent of Blue in 2011. Who’s new Ford Mustang to keep up with. As quoted autoevolution.com (7/4/2010).
This step, so clearly the problem and challenge for Ford. Despite injecting three new engines for the Mustang in 2011, making the car more power and better fuel efficiency than previous models. But the barriers are, in Europe apply the provisions of fuel consumption. Where to 305 HP V6 engine, with 1 liter of fuel must be a distance of 13 km.
If you want to achieve success in Europe, Ford diesel engine must be buried under the hood of the Mustang. Indeed, since its introduction in Europe, the Mustang does not include best-selling vehicle, but the market is not bored, too.
In discussions with the weekly Autoline After House, Dave Pericak Mustang as the Chief Engineer said that to bring diesel engines for European market through the Mustang as flexibility.
For the Mustang which is marketed in Europe, Ford devised berkapasitasa 3.0 L V6 engine which is equivalent to the Jaguar XF and xj. Power produced 270HP with 443 lb-ft of torque.

The main benefit of Diesel combustion engines is that they have a 50% fuel burn efficiency; compared with just 23% in the best gasoline engines. This makes Diesel engines capable of achieving much better fuel efficiency than gasoline vehicles.
Biodiesel is commercially available in most oilseed-producing states in the United States. As of 2005, it is somewhat more expensive than fossil diesel, though it is still commonly produced in relatively small quantities (in comparison to petroleum products and ethanol). Many farmers who raise oilseeds use a biodiesel blend in tractors and equipment as a matter of policy, to foster production of biodiesel and raise public awareness. It is sometimes easier to find biodiesel in rural areas than in cities.
Some Diesel-powered cars can run with little or no modification on 100% pure biodiesel, a fuel that can be made from vegetable oils. Vegetable oils tend to solidify in cold weather conditions so vehicle modifications may be required in order to heat the fuel prior to use under those circumstances. Modern low emission diesels (most often Euro -3 and -4 compliant), typical of the current production in the European industry, require extensive modification of injector system, pumps and seals etc. due to the higher operating pressures. The result is sensitive lubrication & sealing systems that bio diesel fuels do not protect and may even attack. This reduces the market for bio diesels as increasing numbers of new vehicles are not able to use it.
