    Hi All:

    With the Torrance refinery explosion and refinery strikes across the region, I am glad to be driving some turbo diesels the next few weeks...

    Which TDs??
    You already drove the stripper Dodge,right??
    MSRP "just $35,000" or so??

    I noticed here-NOLA suburb-
    the PURE station was asking $2.49 for both 87 octane no ethanol and Diesel
    First time the prices were the same in 10 years maybe??
    Now Shell is $2.29 for 87 octane 10%- Diesel was $2.69 or so last I looked??
    I am a resident DIESEL DENIER
    but only to balance all the TD lovers here
    Sure Diesels all turbo diesels now-get great mpg
    but relative to Toyota hybrids-
    THE PRIUS- and the PIP-they aren't cheap -
    The Prius is sooooo good-
    it has KILLED all economy-ish diesel cars in the USA-the poor TD Cruze
    nice little very efficient car-sporty acceleration etc
    but the PRIUS killed it
    Only the VW TD can compete
    and that is because VW fans-are FANS- not quite like Jeep fans or 1/2 ton truck fans or TD truck fans-but close
    Yeah VW has fans-nuts really to put up with the pitiful QC for all those years

    Wayne-which TDs??
    Pups passing judgement also I hope??
    Pups has a good eye
