About This Quiz

As the alternative to a gas-powered engined, diesel hasn't always had the best reputation. For example, during the oil crisis in the 1970s, many car manufacturers looked to diesel as an alternative.

Chevrolet, for instance, saw big diesel engines such as V8s, for example, as a way to ensure that car sizes didn't need to change. Americans could still have those huge sedans but now run them on diesel. No need, therefore, to move to a smaller design. The thing is, these diesel engines were simply not very good and at the end of the day, hurt diesel-powered cars and their reputations more than many realized. 

Luckily, today, diesel-powered cars are found in a range of models. In fact, most popular cars will have a diesel-powered version. If they don't, they certainly are missing out to their competitors. Modern diesel engines not only burn cleaner than their predecessors, they give excellent fuel consumption figures and perhaps, more importantly, have become ultra reliable. 

So after telling you the virtues of diesel, it's now time to see if you can identify a range of diesel-powered vehicles.

Take your time! This one might stump you.
