FYI diesel lingo

If you drive a diesel vehicle, then your unit of measurement for economy would be fuel mileage, NOT "gas mileage". This is due to the fact that your diesel engine does NOT burn "gas" (short for gasoline) at all, but in fact, does burn diesel fuel. Haha

I can't tell you how many times I've heard a diesel owner saying "my gas mileage". Kind of bugs me...
