Re: Optimal propulsion system

OK, this is going to sound stupid: If noise and vibration are the issue; what about changing to an Atomic 4. My A4 is very smooth and quiet. If it happened that your diesel died, it would probably be cheaper to re-power with a rebuilt A4 than another diesel. Gas doesn't have the range of diesel, but, you are not crossing oceans. Just a thought.
