    We tried to treat this as if it were a real Guinness Record run. We would place a seal over the gas door stating which tank it was, the date, where it took place, and who did the fill up. In order to break the seal to get at the gas cap we would have to cut through the previous seal.

    In the latest Audi commercial, misconceptions about diesel fuel create high drama as a woman fills up her Audi A8 TDI at the pump. While the bystanders don't yet associate the efficiency of diesel with the luxury and performance of an Audi, the two Audi drivers here already know that diesel is the fuel of the future. They've made the intelligent choice of Audi TDI clean diesel.

    Learn more about Audi TDI clean diesel technology.

    Today I managed to get my hands on a fully loaded Lexus es300h and then a loaded Audi A6 TDI right after. It is fun to fantasize but after viciously driving both cars I would definitely go with the Audi hands down if money were no object.

    Hi Hknerdr:

    The Q5 is available as a hybrid and some PHEVs are headed our way later this year.

    I pulled some lost pics and vids from my camera and thought this was appropriate. It was taken just an hour or so before we launched. Too bad we did not have an A8 L TDI to drive too!

    We knocked these stats into next week. :)

    Amazing what you can do if you set your mind to it.
