|*Which does annoy me do you not have diesel cars in America?|
Well, yes and no. Early attempts at diesel automobiles were plagued by poor reliability, which poisoned the well with regards to diesels. For what it is worth, I drive a diesel. It is a pickup truck, which may not exactly count as being green amongst the Hollywood set. But, as I regularly pull substantial loads, I don't think a Prius would quite do.
As I understand it, the main problem is the quality of the diesel fuel that we have over here. It's been terrible - very high in sulfur. But we should now be getting low-sulfur diesel availability, so diesel engines could become more popular.
