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

You know you're obsessed when you track the years and miles you have been driving diesel vehicles.

Today (5/15/2018) marks my 16th anniversary of driving diesel cars. I first drove my 2002 Golf TDI off the dealer's lot on 5/15/2002. The Golf was my 2nd VW and my first diesel. After 16 years and over 800k miles of diesel car ownership, there is absolutely no way I'm ever going back to a gasser again if I can help it. All future vehicle purchases of mine shall only be DIESEL vehicles.

VW really screwed the pooch with the Dieselgate scandal. VW not returning with TDIs simply means I won't be returning as a customer. I'm a lot less brand loyal than I used to be. I welcome diesel vehicles from any and all manufacturers. I'm into BMW Advanced Diesel now. Owning only diesel vehicles has emerged as top priority. Absolutely no more gassers for me. Whatever I own and drive absolutely HAS to be diesel powered.
