The VW Beetle TDI diesel, pervasive in Europe due
to really high fuel costs and forward looking
regulations, is a pleasure to drive, easy to maintain
and much less stressful at the pump than a
comparable gas burner. The high torque (and low
rpm's) of the TDI makes it quiet and powerful on
the highway while demonstrating the hill climbing
strengths of a goat. And burning high cetane, low
sulfur fuel or better yet a 20% blend of biodiesel,
keeps the emissions low. In 18 months and 34K
miles, my TDI Beetle has performed flawlessly and
has been a hoot to drive past a bus load of school
kids instigating a punch buggy frenzy!
Fuel economy, fun to drive, quality build 10K mis
