Oooo let me go buy a VW TDI based vehicle. Wait, it's a VW, no I won't be buying a VW TDI based vehicle. Enough said.

Ford is planning to introduce a diesel Cruze next year and Mazda has said it plans to also introduce one.

However, most recent VW diesels are rated for a maximum of 5-10% biodiesel, due to the way the emissions system uses fuel. The biodiesel doesn't volatilize the same way and ends up in the engine oil, diluting it and causing premature wear.
