it's probably about a wash. you get better mileage, but not twice. I used to have a VW golf with a diesel, and it got about 50 MPG. but a lot of that was because it was small, and had little power, 87 HP I think. and now I believe you have to put an additive in it every couple tanks. factor in the cold weather issues and higher cost of repair and ownership and I don't think you'll ever see them becoming widespread.

What would your salary be in the US, more/less/same ? They say your dollar is worth only slightly less than ours yet they make you guys pay like $50K for a loaded SS.

What gives, what makes the price higher. Mostly taxes?

actually, I believe the Canadian dollar is worth more than the US dollar right now. Canada is benefiting pretty well from high energy prices.

Current test in FYA and manufacturers willingness to work with the aftermarket tuners are seeing some vehicles now coming with double stacking and triple stacking tunes from the factory. I can see why FYA technology is not suitable for performance I can see where the idea will lead to something more feasible for the performance guidance needed in gasoline.
Man I hope you are wrong , I heard Europe smells like a diesel field, every car burns it and it makes your eyes sting , and just plain stinks

Right now, that is not right at all. The price of gas in the Midwest has very little to do with the price of oil. In fact, due to the glut of Canadian and ND oil spilling into the Midwest, refineries in the Midwest region are enjoying the cheapest oil prices of anywhere in the western world...about $50 a barrel less than 5 years ago when gas was $4 a gallon, and at least $20 a barrel cheaper than the price paid in much of the rest of the US and Europe.

Furthermore, with the long list of localized, boutique blends mandated by the EPA and some state agencies, gasoline is very much a highly localized, not global market. Simply drive across the Mississippi or Ohio rivers out of Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio right now, and you'll find gas anywhere from 50 cents to as much as $1 a gallon cheaper in some cases just on the other side of the bridge.

Diesel prices are much less regional than gasoline, and are about the same here as where you our. But our gas is about a buck a gallon higher than yours. Diesel is cheaper per gallon (making it far cheaper energy content-wise) than gas right now where I live.

That's the price you've agreed to pay for socialism. You guys rolled over and accepted that long ago. Many on this side of the border have not. We suck it up to fight back, not bend over.

The sooner everyone learns to understand that the better off we will be. Until we develop a true alternative means of powering our vehicles we going to have to get used to this new normal. It's never going down again folks.

This is the price of owning a high performance machine. I can't intelligently complain that premium is over $4.00. I don't have to like paying that much but complaining about it is beyond pointless guys. Buy a Cruze deisel if you're unhappy about gas prices.
Dirty canadian oil sands oil is about 20 dollars cheaper. I just think the gas companies have mastered the balance of threshold selling power, not ultra high to stop people from buying gas but high enough for maximum profits. They know what theyre doing and know how to get away with it. Greed, simple.
