Yes, the priorities are totally FUBAR!I can say I agree with the folks in the UK that are more interested in MPG than G/KM of CO2.
I wish the EPA would recognize the TRUE polluters. According to Wiki a NY/CA Roundtrip flight produces about 1917 KG of CO2 per passenger. That of course assumes all seats are full. My Touareg TDI puts out 173 G/KM of CO2 according to the UK website. According to my calculations, my wife and I can drive the 6000 miles roundtrip and only produce 1674 KG of CO2. Or 837KG of CO2 per passenger. That makes flying over twice as polluting than driving a large SUV.
If I could just drive the Touareg TDI to Hawaii all would be wonderful.
Having driven multiple times down to Key West, the Florida Keys: going to Hawaii like that sure is a wonderful fantasy!
For personal use the last two grills have been propane! Still have a smaller Weber kettle type (charcoal) going on 39 years old. We even have replaced the coal grates! The daughters got a pellet smoker and have the smoked meats down to a science.
Snow on the ground in Tahoe! They even have proper chain controls!
Heaven knows we do not have any of that ilk, that posts on this topic site! Oh yes I'm totally offended!
If VW made a lighter more metallic blue, sort of like the Nassau blue 2000 Corvette, I think I could see my way to it!
Geez, can you imagine getting the same (2009 VW Jetta TDI's ) % monies & cpmd on the 12 VW Touareg TDI's! ? When do you suppose another GW fleet of debit cards will be ready to be applied for!
The Insiders: Inconvenient numbers for the global warming crowdI'm not predicting the demise of the diesel car market. I am predicting the death of the TDI brand in the marketplace. You may be right that other diesel car makers will fill the gap, presuming they aren't running scared at this point.
I have no skin in the game regarding diesels. Bring on all the players. May the best car win! Let the buyers decide.
BTW, you didn't answer my question. No opinion?
