Diesel Engines Vs. Hybrid Engines

  • Diesel Engines Vs. Hybrid Engines

    I was looking into getting a more cost effient vechicel on gas. What are you thoughts on the new Diesel automotibles that are coming out this year vs. the new hybrids?  More power and better gas milage on the diesel engine is a great selling point so i test drove a VW Jetta TDI recently... it was awesome.   Do you think all the automotive manufactures should be moving in this direction instead of hybrid technology?

  • whoops. obviously, my auto-spell check was not working =)

  • The eventual increase in the cost of diesel will far outweigh any benefit in mpg.

    People forget a short while back when diesel in NY was $5.27 per gallon.
