The problem with Diesel in America is that it costs more than regular unleaded and it pollutes more. I know down here in New Mexico diesel runs about $.30 more than regular unldeaded. Over in Europe they have pretty good emissions controls on diesel and the price is much cheaper than regular unleaded. When I left Germany in Early 2005, we were paying 1.20 Euro ($1.50) per litre for regular unleaded compared to 1.00 or even 90 euro cents per litre for diesel. It's just about 4 litres per gallon for those of you who don't want to do the math. So they are building their diesels better over there. Until they put better emissions on diesel vehicles and bring the price down here in the US I don't see us changing any time soon.
