    i drive a Jetta TDI. hate the driving dynamics but love the efficiency – typically get 800 Kms on a tank with my DSG on sports mode… and can easily get 1000Kms if i am coasting on a hwy. Hoping my next car can be BMW 328d.

    Make a video on which fuels are best for our cars. I stick with chevron fuel because it's advertised as "high quality" but I wonder if there is something better for a better price for my car to get better mpg

    I'm an American and I've been pining for diesel for a looooong time…and why are there no diesel hybrids? I would love a turbo diesel hybrid minivan, that checks all my boxes for the family needs… NOW GET ON IT DAMMIT!

    Desel is more expensive from regular gas in the US. This is the main reason Americans are not using desel by the end this will be the same price

    Actually, I passed by a 76 gas station and the premium gas costs $4.19 while the diesel costs $4.13. So, diesel is becoming a bi t more affordable. BTW, if you want to buy cheaper fuel, look for ARCO or Costco and avoid Chevron and Mobil.

    I know. In fact, this Top 5 list is so different than the last time they mode a video of the same topic. BTW, diesels use common rail direct injection and a turbocharger, so, technically, direct injection is number 1 on this list.

    I wish he would have put in the guy who in 1973 invented a carburetor which made the car go about with 73 mpg, but sunoco gasoline, bought out his patent, so they would not drastically lose money.

    The biggest problem with diesels is that they are really expensive, and negate the fuel savings for someone who does not drive 100k a year. On the other hand, they are still more expensive when u sell.

    The CVT is crap. I have friends and family who have/had cars with cvt. For example a nissan murano guzzles almost 2x as much gas as a normal auto in real life, and we are not talking about any aggressive driving.

    In Belgium 80percent of the cars are diesel. But they want it to shift… because yes it emits much less emissions but more particulates wich are bad for people.

    Americans don't like Diesel because most of us are characterized by unparalleled stupidity and willful ignorance.

    I am american I just bought a Golf TDI and love it. The gas station around my house has diesel for 25 cents more then regular, that makes it cheaper the mid-grade, and premium.

    Diesel sucks. It's STILL stinkey, and very bad for humans.

    Diesels are still pretty expensive to buy, and a lot of gas stations don't even offer diesels, so when traveling, you can't just stop at any station.

    diesel is also very expensive. yeah you may go longer distances…but that is off-put by the fuel cost depending on how much diesel costs

    I have a 2012 Audi A-3 custom S-Line with a 2.4L 4 cyl. I love it, great power and even better savings. I wanted to buy a 2016 Audi Q-5 prestige TDI. But after I signed all the paperwork the whole VW scandal broke loose. Audi told me I could not get a TDI, so they referenced me to the 3.0L petrol. God damn I love that Q-5. Same engine as the Carerra-S's, same turbos, and supercharger. The F'er is fast; I love to go to the track flip her into sport mode and get up to 180 mph with ease.

    And Diesel fuel is a little more expensive. Humans are more concerned with immediate gratification
