    Good discussion about diesel demand in the US. I own two VW diesel powered cars .. a 2010 Jetta and a 2012 Passat, both with 6 speed manual transmissions. My in town mpg hovers around 42-44, while my highway mpg averages about 54.

    One disadvantage I face is the $.40 per gallon federal tax on diesel that dates back to when only long haul truckers used diesel. The tax makes sense in terms of the damage done to highways by 70,000 trucks, but does not make sense in terms of a 3,000 automobile that uses half the fuel of comparable gasoline powered cars. It would be easy to have the 40 cent tax for trucks, and no "diesel" tax for cars and pickups, since long haul trucks are too tall for gas station car lanes.
