Being from the boating world, I'm gun shy about Detroit diesels. Their 2-cycle engines used in marine applications used to leak like a sieve, causing the living and sleeping quarters to wreak of the diesel fuel smell. Fortunately, I never owned one, but know a number of folks who did. My understanding is that all Prevosts come with a Detroit diesel. Does anyone know enough about these engines to be able to discuss their relative merits and whether they suffer from the problems of their 2-cycle cousins?
