Did this video help you?

Scott Margerum: Question though... where is the nose con ... isn't that for aerodynamics as much as protecting the central part of the crank tip? .. I am no airplane expert so I am just curious... still very interesting

BIMMERKID2: what is fuel burn?

Stephen Fereday: I have Citroen C3 Piccaso with a 1600 16 valve turbodiesel making 110 bhp It is smooth light and reliable in all weathers and give fantastic mpg I think someone should stick one in a light plane I believe the engine is a Pugeot

Lawrence Rhodes: About 23mpg.

Brian steff magnussen: I have a deep respect for Finns who is doing things in a Finnish way. God this airplane sounds good just before it was shut down. 

juan asanelli:  Bravo  Vw diesel ! Y lo puede bien? Despega en la misma longitud de pista o necesita correr un poco mas ?  Que diferencia de peso hay con el Continetal?  Es maravilloso poder usar un aeroplano diesel  Es mas seguro el Gasoil que la gasolina

dieselyeti: Interesting choice of propeller, why not a typical Hartzell or MacCauley? Also, where is the radiator mounted? How effective is it keeping the engine at operating temps?

Cessna just announced their new 172 diesel - Yours for the low, low price of $420k US. Love the idea, just can't afford that kind of dough to save $ on fuel :)

bigroy38: Redbird Skyport in San Marcos,Tx has one.

palletjack612: It sounds just like my car. Wait, same engine!

Matt Hayes: Pekka, I notice it's been a while since this post. I'm very curious as to how the aircraft has been performing since this video. I think you've got a brilliant idea here!

3593893: Nice, we could not get away with that on a Cessna in the U.S.

Jay “jcxtreme72” Cee: That is fantastic! What kind of feet per minute does it climb with that motor.


Bounty B. Wolf: I just knew this wasnt in the states as they are all "no you cant modify your AC without filling out a couple metric tons of paperwork and waiting 3 and 3/4 centuries for OUR decision to allow you to do that. May you have may THOUSANDS of happy flight hours with your conversion. :)

joses box: Thats great! Is it still running pretty good?

Pekka Hämäläinen: 100 hours. I have not eny problems with engine or PSRU.

Robert West: teelouwi would be really interested in any note from your report or the report it self i am working on a presentation for my reciprocating engine class on diesels compared to avgas motors.

antimattercrusader: This is amazing.

bugnut82: Can it run a normal prop ?

bugnut82: That is COOL!

JTGmartin: How many total hours flying are on engine now? Would you be interested in building 2 for me?
