Why Diesel Vehicles Are Better at Towing

Why Diesel Vehicles Are Better at Towing

Have you ever wondered why diesel vehicles are often preferred for towing heavy loads over gasoline? There's more to it than just the rumble of a diesel engine.

QUALITY PARTS

Let me tell you about an experience at a well-established Italian restaurant that had changed hands a few months ago. The previous owners were an Italian couple that used old family recipes and fresh ingredients to make their pasta and sauces from scratch. They enjoyed stellar reviews for decades. The new owners were taking a different approach. The cooks followed the same recipes, but were required to use bagged salads, canned sauces and vegetables, frozen meat and boxed pasta. Needless to say, there was a night and day difference between the before and after dining experience – and their online reviews reflected the decline. Same chefs – same recipes. Poor ingredients. Now, you can imagine how important high quality replacement parts are for vehicle repairs. The parts need to deliver the performance you expect right out of the box – and over the long haul. We feature quality NAPA auto parts. They meet or exceed the original manufacturer specifications so they fit ... read more
