RV Curious - diesels

Hi. I don't own an RV but am investigating class A diesel pushers. I know a bit about automotive diesels as I currently drive a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a Mercedes 3.0 CRD (common rail), and had a 1980 Volvo with a non-turbo, rotary fuel pump, 2.3l diesel made by Audi. (Yes, both of these were factory options.) The differences in the fuel systems across that time divide are major and make a huge difference in power, economy, and emissions. So where do I go to learn what fuel system technologies are in what RV diesels, for what model years? Yah, that's a big question. I'm hoping to find some summary.

Thanks in advance.

Most late model diesels are computer controlled now like your Cherokee. For the most part, very reliable. I like getting 10 mpg with my 26k lb DP with toad. No smoke like your older Volvo and little or no fuel smell. My rv has a cat diesel with PCM controlled injectors, standard strait 6 configuration with the cam in block. I am not that familiar with cummins but very similar I think. Any help?

I have a Cummins built to 2010 EPA standards...no smoke, no smell. Each motor coach manufactures selects the chassis/engine combination for their product therefore you can go to the coach manufacturers site to get further information on what engines they offer. In the case of my coach it is built on a Freightliner chassis and your can go to their WEB site and they have a listing of what coaches they offer their chassis on with spec sheets, current and past models and you can start your research on the engine offered from at point; Built On Freightliner

I can only assume that other chassis manufactures have the same kind of data...

Good luck and welcome to iRV2
