Oh, I hear them. They always want to know how nice it is to tow with a diesel. Never a question about how can you tow that Coach.

Not true. The new diesels have some sort of after burner that makes
them nearly odor free. (It also costs a tad of MPG to do that.)

My beef is with those knuckle heads who put on those huge exhaust
stacks, get a chip to de-tune the engine to make it smoke and then
remove all semblance of any kind of muffler.

The new stock diesels have very little odor- also due to low sulfur fuel
mandated now days.

I had a K1500 Blazer Detriot diesel way back in the late 80s. That puppy
would pull but it also smelled bad and smoked when I had my foot in it.
