Re: [DMCForum] Diesels



A "proper" (eg Peugeot/Citroen XUD) diesel has no electric components
apart from when starting. All it needs to keep going is fuel and air.
That said, they do have an electric valve which cuts the fuel flow when
the ignition is turned off so a dead battery will cut the engine.
