quote: I've said it before and I'll say it again, the USA is ready to embrace diesel cars.
quote: Diesel cars can be nice, but there isn't really any cost savings here in the US.
quote: The cost is negligible compared to a gasoline Golf.
quote: Also, a lot of cars require premium unleaded. Where I live, diesel is only $0.10/gallon more than premium, yet my TDI is getting nearly 74% better MPG (yes, 74%...I went from 23MPG car requiring premium unleaded to my 40MPG VW Golf TDI) than my previous car.
quote: Me, I'm happy enough with the 230mpg in my Volt, but then it fits my use case pretty closely.
