Smart Turbo Diesel or VW Lugo Diesel
I am looking into a power plant for a Zenith 701. I am very interested in
going the route of a diesel.
I like the Toyota (Yaris, and other models) 1.4 D-4D (ALL Aluminum) Turbo
I'm having trouble finding a variety of good links to the engine's specs.
Toyota .................1.4 D-4D
Horsepower ........90 @ 3,800
Torque ...............190 @ 1,800-3,000
(weight includes many extras: turbos for one)
From the below link:
"...VVT-i continuous variable valve timing although Daihatsu called it
"DVVT" instead (D for Daihatsu?)"
This is on the normally aspirated 1.3 model. I suspect the 1.4 D4-D is also
DVVT --- which is a plus for Sport Pilot applications, since constant speed
props are out.
(Same link as below ...wait for it)

"Toyota (aluminum) Diesel 1.4 D-4D ...89 bhp"
Good info on the Toyota Ya(n)is 1.4 Turbo Diesel engine
1. Toyota 1.4 D4-D should be able to turn a prop at 2400-3000, WITHOUT
needing a PSRU.
2. Direct injected Turbo Diesel will do well with this LSA requirement: "A
maximum airspeed in level flight with maximum continuous power (VH) of not
more than 120 knots CAS under standard atmospheric conditions at sea level."
3. If it's a single seat LSA, the weight penalty is not as much of an
4. Throttled back to 2400rpm, I would think the 1.4 D4-D would cruise
around all day @ (under) 2 GPH ...just a guess. g
5. Turbo cruise would mean Sport Pilot/LSA flights @ 8k-10k ft might see
140-150 kts (GPS) ground speeds. ...just a guess. g
Thanks so much for this type of information. Are you in Euro? Keeping
