[Vwdiesel] DIESEL RABBIT SIGHTINGS (was rabbit droppings #145)

Here in Nanaimo, BC, there are quite a few diesel A2's still on the road,
some diesel A1's.

Last summer even saw a VW PU with a "diesel" patch and the letters "bio"
stuck on in front the patch.  It had Oregon plates if memory serves

A lot of newer TDIs... salesman at the stealership says they're selling
close to 50% diesels and they go like hot cakes.

Not too much rust, either.  Seems like the only rusty cars I see out here
are older Japanese cars (and Fords, of course!)
