>Thoughts from one long-time diesel freak and incessant lurker: It seems to me that we cannot separate oil from war- these are not off-topic ramblings- we choose to drive diesels partly because they are so conservative of the earth's resources and our hope all along has been that we would not get to this point, the point of needing to invade other countries to supply our oil needs, but SUV's and their mentality have become more popular than Rabbit diesels and look what happens.....

I guess the oil companies also try to avoid the development of
alternative fuel for gasoline engines. I'm 100% sure that some fuel
could be made using synthetic or plant resources that will also run a
gasoline engine.. I love diesel engines, but with the majority or cars
having a gasoline engine, it cannot be avoided..

But the SUV trend is horrible.. Even a V8 powered "normal" gasoline
car gets _far_ better mileage than those dinosaurs..
