Why not have separate gas and diesel boards?

Since this forum has so many separate boards why not have separate gas and diesel boards? I think it would be great

separate gas and diesel?

Not sure what you mean but if it's that there should be a section of this system that is dedicated to gas and one dedicated to diesel I'd comment that in my usage and posting so far I've never commented or asked questions of fuel specific problems. Most systems that are dealt with or problems seem to be common to both. If you had separate sections you'd get underlap and overlap it seems to me. My thoughts anyway...

Except for some chassis components and drivetrain, they both have the same systems and we already have specific chassis forums for these discussions.

X2 90% of problems are common to both. I have owned both a gasser and Diesel MH. There are chassis forum sites for specific problems related to the chassis. IMHO

There are separate boards for CAT and Cummings, as well as for specific chassis brands. The few threads that deal specifically with gas or diesel issues are usually easily identified by the title and are easily enough avoided.

In today's market there are times when B's and C's are very similar and in the past they may have been more different. From watching it seems to me the B's were originally more of a van and the C's more "truck-like". Some still are more that way. I'm guessing that's why originally there was more need for a separate area to discuss them. It's also been a recent trend that Ford chassis is dominant and that make for a lot of similarity too.

As with all groupings of "anything" you can pick at why they are and it never will be perfect. IMO.

We review our forums periodically and at this time we are not planning any changes.
