Is suchomel is his real name? What is his SS number? Someone should investigate. Anyhow he is very convincing. I believe he is telling the thruth.

Correction, German Tanks only ran on Petrol/Gasoline, let's keep the facts straight.

It's interesting to note from this publication:

The Best Army Tanks of World War II
The Panther, T-34, Tiger, Mk. IV Panzer, and Sherman
By Chuck Hawks

Mr. Hawks makes the statement regarding the German Mk. IV Tiger:

"... the first 250 Tigers were powered by a Maybach HL P45 diesel..."

Do you believe Mr. Hawks could be mistaken?

Mr Hawks is indeed mistaken. The first 250 production vehicles of the Tiger I were powered by a Maybach HL 210 P 45 engine, which was a petrol engine. No Tiger Is were ever fitted with diesel engines. The following is taken from a 1943 British report on a captured Tiger with this engine:

"CARBURETTORS
The aluminum inlet manifold of each cylinder head is mounted in the Vee between the banks. Each mounts two down draught Solex Duplex carburettors, type 52 JFF 2 - 2U 2046. These carburettors are of the twin choke type with exposed jets."
