Really, the driveway, my 6.7L turbocharged Scoprion diesel engine just got 22mph heading to and from Duluth and the twin cities. And all with with no black soot what so ever in the tail pipe, looks just like the day I bought it, shiny new metal inside the exhaust.
As compared to 50-60 miles per gallon on a euroweeny? Yes the euroweeny diesel made a tiny amount more smoke and oxides of N. BUT THE FUCKING GAS HOG MONSTER TRUCK ENGINE JUST PUT a butt tonne more carbon dioxide per mile driven into the atmosphere so fuck off with the gas guzzling bullshit. Move to California and watch it burn, send your dollars to the oil industry and then complain when Bush the Third gets into power and the price of oil goes through the roof again. Short sighted bunch of fucking morons that can't see the forest for the trees. In fact they couldn't care less about the decline of Western Red Cedar happening all alone the west coast of North America. And the steady decline in the West Coast fisheries the severe drought that will eventually hurt the entire rain cycle of the entire Rockie Mountain and Coast Ranges.
Total and complete environmentally stupid morons piled on with more completely ignorant blind and stupid morons and that is the total sum of the issue.
Volkswagen cheating just so it could create an engine that would get better fuel economy is a symptom of the problem. We have our fucking heads screwed on so wrong that we waste resources and think that spewing more carbon dioxide in the air is the answer. I want to know how badly the Euroweeny diesels and Jap turbos that get the same kind of performance and fuel economy actually create NO2 and soot. I am almost willing to bet that on a per gallon basis it is almost the same as the big cummins that everybody thinks is eco friendly. I am almost certain that the amount of soot and NO2 per mile is less in the Euroweeny. So I call bullshit and hefferdust on the who eco diesel scam that we are being sold by Chrysler and the American auto industry.
