Fuel Economy: Who cares? It's a DIESEL! Great fuel economy comes as a bonus!

I'll need to get as much life out my Q5 TDI as possible.
BMW not returning with diesels means I won't be returning as a customer and I'm committed to keeping my 14 535d and 12 X5 35d as long as possible. VW already lost me as a customer due to no more TDIs.

I'm becoming more of a truck guy too so if I add another diesel vehicle to my all diesel fleet, it likely will be a diesel pickup truck. I miss the 08 Ford F-350 SuperDuty 6.4L PowerStroke Diesel truck I had a few years ago. The truck was too damn useful for those times when I needed a truck. At the time it was hard to justify owning 3 vehicles when I'm the only driver of them. That means I probably will have another one again someday. The diesel pickup truck market does not appear to be threatened at all and is expanding. Diesel pickup truck owners are our friends when it comes to keeping diesel alive.

No gassers or electric for me. Whatever I own and drive HAS to be DIESEL powered.
