When thinking about diesels I think about those darn US regulations. That’s a big problem when it comes to these cars.

I don't know if its the regs anymore as the chevy cruze has a 2 litre diesel. They could just as easily put the 1.7 litre diesel in it that gets 60 mpg.

I found a pretty good article about diesels in the US.

An interesting article, but one thing the article doesn't tell you is diesel engines typically run for half a million miles. I think its more like the US automakers DON'T want their cars on the roads for that long.

I wonder if all makers from around the globe don’t want their cars in the US on the road that long.
