Diesel engines are typically a $3-5000 pop over the cost of their gas buddies... plus the PCM, harnesses, transmission... for a couple miles per gallon?

100,000 miles driven at 32 mpg = 3,120 gallons of fuel
100,000 miles driven at 40 mpg = 2,500 gallons of fuel.

What's a gallon of gas worth? $4? (seriously, I don't know, I'm in Canada...) So over the 100,000 miles after the thousands in replacements... you'll spend $2,500 more in fuel. Meh.

Europe can keep diesels, IMO... the pros just don't justify the cons for me.
