  • Re: What Would It Take for YOU to buy a diesel car?

    As Brad Pitt said in "Inglorious Bastards" ", "and Bitness is a booming" !

    My take is business entities here will continue to be world competitive for @ least another generation, i.e. 30 to 40 years. People from all over the WORLD have & will continue to flock to & through here!

    This area literally stands on the shoulders of "Giants of the past!" Those giants & many others cooperated & competed to make this area broad based & deep.

    Governor Moonbeam may be a lefty, but even he & cohorts recognizes the above. There enters the central hypocracy issue.

    But then, Seattle & other sanctuary surrounding cities are GREAT places to hold violent lefty protests! G20 conference, some years ago is a lightweight example. Yup burn down the local Starbucks, gut downdown, while using nice hotels!

    Again it's the EIA.com central barrel (42 gals) of oil ratio: 19 gals gasoline/13 gals ULSD. Sure the lefties don't want diesel, but what are they going to do with it? But it even gets more basic than that. Oil and its myraid of products are literally the foundation of our modern civilization I don't see the eco environmentalists leading the way to living in yurts. It would have made Joseph Smith proud!?

    Oh by the way, I have lived, slept, ate, washed, worked in tents for at least three months! So it is not like I do not know the drill.

    But MB says...https://www.voanews.com/a/daimler-diesel/3959546.html?ref=yfp

    Some would say NOW is a very dark time for the diesel PVF . I think this is the beginning of a diesel renaissance!

    Why? For starters 1. it solves the fake problem of too much oil demand 50% diesel PVF cuts barrel demand 50 to 65% 2. It actually posts a minimum of 30% better fuel mileage 3. Lower C02 emissions

    A post of 42 mpg diesel in the range of 40 to 45 mpg! So it would appear that my swag was totally in the target (swag) area!

    OPEC would probably like to see the American oil shale business totally collapse---and it seems to be doing just that. I mean, in places like Wyoming, it's an economic disaster zone.
    Sure, no worries there. The resource isn't going anywhere if we leave it in the ground. Its day will come whether tomorrow or twenty years down the road.

    I dunno...fracking has become mighty unpopular across political lines, for any number of reasons.
    The eco conservatives have always had a schizophrenic attitude. It's a no brainer what they will say if they are inconvenienced!

    When the local oil refinery had a pipe fail & the prices shot up 50 cents a gal gasoline almost overnight, the Eco retards wanted to investigate for conspiracy to commit negligence!? Again I can't even make this stuff up.
