I was looking yesterday at a post. was specified in the tags. The question was about , so I tried to add the tag, only to realize that and are set as synonyms. I clicked on the tag to see the related questions and started looking through them. I can tell you from the variety of questions, this should not be a tag synonym. There are a 128 questions which cover everything, but only a small portion of them are diesel related. Looking at them just now, there are three tags which flow into , those being , , . IMHO, this really should not be. If I were to have been setting this up, the following would hold true:

  • and would be synonyms, covering petrol/gas engine related items
  • would be its own tag, covering all things related to diesel engine tech
  • would be its own tag, covering all thing related to fuel delivery

To me these are very different things. I think a perusal through the questions will tell you there is way too many questions lumped into which really doesn't make sense being there.

Just so you know I looked, there was this question posted here in the Meta where I think this all started. It was asked very early on in the Beta. I believe the outcome was a bit short sighted.

    @Larry ... I saw that you had written that. It looks as more of a knee jerk reaction by a brand new mod on a brand new beta. No big deal, but I think it causes some issues and makes the tag subject too large. Thanks! – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 16 '14 at 15:52
  • I guess if I had read your entire question. I would have known that. Lol saw enough to know I already agreed and commented – Move More Comments Link To Top Oct 16 '14 at 15:56
  • @Larry How about also changing the fuel tag to fuel-delivery, so new posters won't get confused? – Paul Oct 18 '14 at 17:03
  • @Paul ... Not a bad idea, but if people would look at the tag properties in the first place, it wouldn't be an issue anyway. But, if the mods decided to go that way, I wouldn't have an issue. It would definitely be more descriptive. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Oct 18 '14 at 19:26
