Audi Clean Diesel – TDI Technology

Mar 31

Audi Clean Diesel TDI has been available world wide for some time and will be making its debuet in North America in April 2009. Knowing Audi has had huge success with Diesel and even applied it to there race program and are now on the 2nd generation race car development, I think we will be seeing alot more diesel.

Below is a digram of seven Truths About Audi Q7 clean Diesel.
Picture Description
1. If 33 percent of all vehicles driven were Audi Q7 TDIs, it would save approximately 350,000 Barrels of oil a day.
Picture Description
2. The Audi Q7 3.0-Litre TDI engine produces 137 foot pounds of torque per liter of displacement-far more then a comparable gasoline engine.
Picture Description
3.The Audi Q7 TDI engines common-rail injection system can inject precise amounts of fuel into each chamber up to five times per combustion cycle, which is the main reason traditional diesel clatter has been silenced for good.
Picture Description
4. The Q7 TDI with its 26-gallon fuel tank can drive more then 600 miles with out a fill up or a distance from Washington D.C. to Savannah Georgia.
Picture Description
5. In Actual real world driving, the Audi Q7 TDI will use up to 40 percent less fuel then comparable gasoline engines.
Picture Description
6. The Fuel to air ratio in Audis Q7 3.0 Liter TDI engine can exceed 140:1 in no load or idle conditions, which is one reason why TDI technology saves fuel
Picture Description
7. Each Fuel injector in the Audi Q7 3.0 liter TDI engine will open and close approximately 1 billion times over its service life.
Picture Description
I would like to mention the AdBlue that Audi will be using, if you open the fuel door of your Audi Q7 TDI you will see two portals; one is for clean diesel and the other for the AdBlue. AdBlue is a chemical solution that is introduced downstream in the exhaust system, the purpose: “To separate the remaining microscopic compounds of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and form the non toxic molecules of Nitrogen and Oxygen – both of witch are abundant in the atmosphere.
Picture Description
The AdBlue tank is separate from the Clean Diesel fuel tank and only needs to be filled and serviced every 15,000 miles. Knowing that Audi recommended service intervals are every 10,000 miles this coincides with regular service, so you should never have to worry about the AdBlue if you are going to your authorized Audi Service Department.

Do you know if the A5TDI will become available for MY2010 or should I give up waiting (two years now)?

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
