VW diesels are here now. I looked at three about one month ago and that was in California. I think the sticker said about 42or 45 hwy. $23500 sticker.

I think what you are seeing is a "newer" diesel engine. I could be wrong but the super-efficient engine that i was refferring to is supposed to get like 60mpg and is still aways off from being offered in the U.S. Maybe the incentives will be adjusted with the new admin.

I bought vw diesel new in 2001, it has averaged 39.5 mpg for the first 100,000 miles with virtually no engine maintainence except oil changes and 1 warranty mass air sensor replacement,
I just don't understand the need for billions of dollars to be spent on hybrid technology to get the averge fuel economy up to 40 mpg for medium size autos.

The longer they can drag out the turnover to efficient vehicles the more they stand to make.........they can't just let the secrets out of the bag in the first inning.
