Looking down

Travels.  A van with five cylinders has a good comfortable reliable 'beat' to it while out on the country roads even if it is not exactly quiet.   However, the Merc Sprinter has now updated from five to other configurations.  This diesel model was made in Germany while the same van might be found as a Dodge etc when made elsewhere. 
  Progress is made on smaller yet more powerful engines for Sprinters and led by the tighter controls on emissions. Small diesel European cars for city driving are frowned upon due to diesel emissions and normal petrol power has been improved.  Here the big semis are adding blue liquid to the fuel to combat pollution.
