comment Diesel vs Petrol motorcars. Pro's and cons?
I'm not interested in the inner workings of petrol vs. diesel engines, but more in what would be of relevance to an everyday buyer when choosing between diesel vs. petrol I'm not sure this is about motor vehicle repair. This seems more like a shopping question, which would be off-topic here.

comment Least wear-and-tear, most fuel efficient method of coasting in a manual transmission car?
@Bob - Actually, it's important to determine the boundaries now, not once the rifraff has taken over your Q&A site. It's much easier to keep the bad stuff out now than it is to try to get rid of it later. Not meeting the number of questions is a short term goal. Focus on the long term and the site will be fine. With that said, I do agree with you that this question should be reopened, and I'll vote too. It's like that restaurant you went to that had a roach crawl across your plate. It's been ruined for you, and nothing that they can do will ever fix it. Online communities are the same.

This is a really great thought-provoking question and answer. It kind of helps explain why braking in an electric car puts more energy back into the system.

comment Can I drive my 4wd 4runner in front wheel only?
@Tim - It could work, but in my experience "accidental features" rarely happen. In general, if a machine isn't designed to be used in a certain manner, using it in that manner will prematurely wear it out.

Is there a way you can edit your question to make it apply to maintenance and repair? I think your "driving question" may be closed as off-topic as per this meta topic: meta.mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/1/…

Is this considered a "driving question"? Should this be closed as off topic as per this meta-post: meta.mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/1/86. @Larry - I replaced the link with the correct one from meta. Thanks!

Why the downvote? My Ford Truck, geared low, will hold 6MPH when going downhill when it's locked in first. Dodge Caravans with overdrive transmissions, on the other hand, will accelerate downhill on their own as the gear ratio is actually past 1/1 when in overdrive.
