Diesels are a real bargain

I've only said this a couple thousand times. The diesel engine is 30%-40% more efficient than an equivalent gasoline engine but not only that it's simpler. According to Edmonds the cost to drive for a the same model VW Jetta with a diesel rather than a gasoline engine is about $800 in fuel per year. $800 in fuel and one less reason to give money to people who want to kill us. I call that a bargain.

Oh yeah and an audi diesel won Le Mans this year
"Audi led every lap as the diesel cars, as expected, enjoyed
greater fuel economy but also proved quicker than their
petrol-powered rivals."
