Fuel Economy: It's still a diesel!

Wow...

So apparently I killed the thread...

So I have another story: Was filling up end of last week and a diesel Passat pulled up on the other side of the island I was at. He started filling his car and walked partway around the island to look at my BMW (guess he saw the green handle and was confirming it was a diesel).

He asked me what kind of mileage I get, we talked a bit and I explained that I had a diesel Golf previously but used the buyback to "upgrade" to the BMW. When he left he had that gears-turning look in his eye

My stories are mainly just guys filling work trucks asking me how many MPG I see. No one has yelled at me to stop putting diesel in my car.

I feel like with the recent "dieselgate" the general public is now aware that VW has diesel cars.
