Diesel Cleans Up Reputation

Foreign companies are now trying to get the jump with vehicles powered by diesel. With a new sophisticated exhaust system to comform to the revised fed pollution laws (to use diesel fuel with only 15 ppm of sulphur vs. the former 500 ppm of sulphur), the new vehicles will save big $$ on fuel costs. Engines can be more powerful, too!

For instance, a Mercedes-Benz E320 diesel sedan costs about $1,000 more than a similar gas model. But it gets more than 35 miles per gallon, about 10 miles per gallon better than a comparable gas-fueled Mercedes.

This is not your diesel from the 80′s, and a recent survey by Autobytel showed 72% of Americans would “absolutely” consider buying a diesel vehicle.
