    Volkswagen exec reaffirms commitment to diesel: ‘Now it is absolutely clean’

    Too bad for VW, but the technology is not dead: https://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2019/04/top-10-best-diesel-cars-you-can-buy-in-the-us---the-short-list.html As far as I’m concerned, I will never give up the diesel dream.

    So, is VW ever bringing back any diesel cars to Amerika?

    EPA and California give Chrysler 2017 permission

    I waited in vain for VW to take advantage of the new diesel friendly government in DC, but Chrysler-Fiat were savvy and diligent to do so: https://www.wsj.com/articles/fiat-chrysler-gets-approval-to-sell-diesel-vehicles-amid-ongoing-federal-emissions-probe-1501257975 Maybe my next Passat will...

    Nanometer soot maybe worse for diesel emissions

    Today comes the news that DUSTLESSNESS INCREASES POLLUTION: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39895558 I wonder if the environmentalist drive to reduce the size of soot particles makes also pollution worse in European cities, in other words: large size soot particles may be better...

    The age of engine downsizing is over, says Volkswagen

    I think that this means that the Environmentalism-driven witch hunt on automobiles is history. No more clown cars for the next 8 years. Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What should I do with my 2014 Audi Q5 TDI?

    You should sell it now before Trump's rollback of EPA and CAFE standards floods the market with cheap Audi/VW used TDI automobiles, which will be happening in 12/18 months.

    President Trump to roll back Automobile Pollution Laws

    Could this spell salvation to the VW TDI fix? You be the judge: https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/03/03/us/politics/trump-vehicle-emissions-regulation.html Maybe not all the buyback cars will end in South America. I'm eager to purchase a "buy back" in mint condition for the kids in college.

    VW and others ask Trump to lower EPA regulations

    Change is coming: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/16/hedke-new-age-epa/ If I were VW, I would take advantage of the changes to request a change in ash regulations. Micron size ash is easier on human lungs, and easier on diesel technology than today's nanometer ash regulations.

    Cruze vs TDI

    Cruze TDI came out around 2012/2013, MUCH before dieselgate.

    VW and others ask Trump to lower EPA regulations

    This move may save VW TDI cars: http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN15R0U9 If the President fulfills his campaign promises, we may even have our fix approved.

    Bosch is also paying: WILL U.S. GOV'T APPROVE FIXES?

    Well, it was Bosch's turn in the hot seat and they quickly pleaded guilty: http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN15G3NX Will the new U.S. government approve the fix of all VW diesel engines involved in Dieselgate?

    German Court Hildesheim: VW cheat = horse-meat lasagna

    CHINA loves horse meat lasagna, they are keeping VW in the black: http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/34375127/vw-likely-to-win-global-sales-crown-as-toyota-growth-slows As long as Chinese buyers love eating VW lasagna, American buyers can go pound sand (or buy GM diesels).

    President Trump may rescind a few EPA rules

    If this is correct, and he follows thru, it may be that a large number of regulations, including environmental regulations which are applicable to diesel emissions, will be rescinded by executive fiat, and perhaps, with Congressional legislation...

    German Court Hildesheim: VW cheat = horse-meat lasagna

    German Courts are furious over VW cheating its costumers. Three German judges said that the fraudulent diesel emision design was the same as selling lasagna with horse-meat instead of beef...
