I don't think diesel prices are going down either, but at least you can make your own...

Not only that - but the mileage per tank can be almost double - a buddy gas a Golf TDI and gets almost a thousand km / tank

The tiny little tank on our Smart goes about 400 km on 12 bucks worth of diesel

I've always preferred gasoline, but the torque specs on the CDI models are just amazing. Perfect for trips up in the mountains towing a boat at the same time.

I'm not really bothered either.  My Land Rover is a diesel, and lots of Rover owners swear by it due to the diesel's better engine braking.  When off-roading this can make quite a difference.  It makes a very re-assuring sound that says: Reliable, dependable, hard-working.  The Mog (ultimate off-roader!) is petrol, (benzine, gasoline etc.) and makes a totally different sound.  My favourite sound though, is the noise my Moto Guzzi V50 makes ~ oh yeah, V twin music!

RE: Orientation -- no not sexual orientation

Wow that's so funny... is it real?

Saw the BMW bike recently, around $750, and was impressed with its looks.

Looks a lot better than the BMW cars!

Diesel totally rules! 38-40 mpg, 750 miles to a tank of fuel. Durability of a tank. 500,000 mile life expectancy. No stupid spark plugs. 1,000's of truckers can't be wrong.
