I drive a 2001 Jetta TDI 6 liter a 100 Km and love it
For work and long distance I drive my Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel 12.5 a 100 Km not bad for a 4x4 large vehicle.

Yeah, but it seems there is a LOT of mis-priced spots where diesel is put in Premium or vice versa...

Big Oil will charge what they want for diesel and there is nothing you can do or say about it! Big Oil exports fuel to other countries that will pay more for it. Big Oil does Not care about your economic status or your ability to pay for their fuel. The trend for fuel prices is higher prices, this makes Chuck very happy. People will still drive and buy fuel but it sure helps to have a job too!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

The trucking industry and independent truckers just pass the cost of diesel along to consumers.

Get those trucks fitted for propane and get propane into the truck stops. I saw propane for $1.60 per gallon in Prescott, AZ yesterday. Propane at $1.60 per gallon sure beats diesel for the $4.19 to $4.25 that diesel is selling for around here.

Diesel cost the same to refine as gas
They are both produced from the same process
and you get twice as much gas from a barrel of oil as you do diesel
20 gallons gas and 10 gallons diesel and other products

I would think this would lead more trucking companies to consider CNG trucks.
