indeed. thats one thing i always stress to people. milage on the car doesn't exactly depict the number of rotations the engine as done within those miles. hell, someone who commutes in thick traffic for long distances could potentially have the equivalent to 6000 miles by comparison to someone who commutes the same distance on a open, trafic-free higway at 3000 miles.

i'm from alaska. i've never had a problem with startup with diesels. that's what glow plugs are for. anyhoo, i think the point wasn't so much the differences in petrol or diesel, but more so the wear and tear from extended opperating of the friction components. i had a much worse time in fairbanks starting my 3.0L petrol turbo Z car than starting the UD diesel box truck for work.
