My husband and I have been using the services of Kropps Mechanical for 17 years. Graham, Scott and Annette are always approachable, professional, yet friendly, and we have always found their work to be second to none. We cannot recommend Kropps Mechanical enough. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Dear Graham, Annette, Scott and the team at Kropps Finding a good mechanic is like finding a needle in a haystack- someone you can trust, who tells it like it is, but in a kind, understanding way. Really appreciate your work!!
Recently brought my car in for a major service and I am very happy with the work that was done. Being an older car that she is there was a hiccup of some items unbeknownst to me that desperately needed to be worked on that I wasn't entirely notified for. However, this further cements to me that Graham and the Kropps team care more for my safety and the price was still well under what was quoted. Thankyou will be seeing you in future.

Diesel Service & Repairs

Diesel engines and petrol engines have a distinct set of differences, including:

Type of fuel



Diesel engines are built to withstand higher compression of the fuel so they generally last longer than petrol engines.


Diesel engines are 25-30% more efficient than petrol because they convert heat into energy while most of the heat produced in a petrol engine goes out the exhaust pipe.


Diesel engines produce more torque which makes them good for towing.

Fuel filter

While it’s important to have clean fuel in your petrol engine, dirty fuel will only cause the car to run less efficiently. In a diesel engine, dirty fuel can severely damage the engine so it’s important to get the filter checked regularly.

Spark plugs and distributors

These are an important part of your petrol engines but guess what, diesel engines don’t have them so they don’t need servicing. Diesel engines achieve combustion by compression alone, without the need for a spark.


Diesel powered vehicles can be thought of as the workhorse while petrol powered engines are more like a racehorse, however, diesel engines are actually able to achieve better acceleration, it’s just that the other properties lead to them usually being fitted to heavier vehicles which make acceleration slower.
