Seems to be the norm for automakers coming out with smaller diesels. Where was this idea ten years ago?!

Now that these are coming out from every manufacturor, think it will raise the price of diesel?

Yes... it has already.

10 years ago you would struggle to find a diesel car here, now I would say about 50% of vehicles are available with a diesel engine, and probably make up about 20% of sales.

I see two issues.

The cost factor: How much more for a diesel engine?

The cost factor: How much more for diesel?

Here in LA LA Land, diesel is around 50 cents a gallon higher a gallon than 91 octane gasoline.

'ol Rudolf wouldn't be pleased.

I think that 2nd cost factor would be the clincher too... Here diesel is hit around 90c higher a gallon than gas, and given its India and China's fuel of choice, I can't see it reducing any time soon.


I am glad I don't have to pay tax on my diesel, so it actually works out around 60c a gallon cheaper for diesel than "gas" for me... but few are in my situation... And coupled with the reliable 55mpg+ I get out of the diesel Focus, am very happy indeed.

Yep, should have done it a long time ago. High diesel prices will no doubt hurt the sales of diesel 1/2 tons.

Who cares at this point. Have you seen diesel prices these days?
I've parked my diesel trucks for almost a year now. Too bad I have to drive it again because my $500 ford contour died.
