150-MPG Diesel PRODUCTION CAR MAY HIT U.S. DEALERSHIPS

I know this doesnt have anything to do with Powerstrokes, but it's good to know it's in the works

Article Detail

Man would I love to have one of those for my run-around vehicles. Think how much money I'd save to spend on the F-250

Something tells me Americans are going to rethink that performance thing when Diesel prices get any higher.
