Is this really what America thinks...?

Green Wash: How Do I Save Fuel The Smart Way?


BASICALLY it says "the new diesels are good, but gas powered cars are better, so are hybrids" in a sense. What a load of biased, uneducated sh*t.

I don't know if this is really how stupid the majority of the country really is, or if its the media brainwashing again. Oh and not a single mention of Hydrogen cell prospects...

I think there is more bureaucratic BULL@#$% involved than just lack of interst. If you HONESTLY were to get in front of a nation audience and say If you could buy a car for LESS than a Prius and get more longevity and better gas milage, would you buy it???? They would beat a path to your door....

YouTube - Meet the Volkswagens - Jetta TDI Meets Prius

Funny commercial

I saw another commercial the other day for a "clean diesel" Audi "deisel, its no longer a dirty word"

YouTube - Audi Official Commercial: Oil Parade

Maybe if this stuff takes off they will take it a little easier on the diesel community
