Where is gas .97 a gallon?Diesel engines are SO done. That article only means that somebody has figured a new way to make them even more expensive. The diesel option in heavy duty pickups costs $10,000. The higher powered gasoline option costs $2000. And then I snapped this picture over the weekend: If regular gas is half the price of diesel, and diesel engines get 30% better fuel economy, when will the better fuel economy of the diesel recoup the extra $8000? Answer: Never. The gasoline fuel cost per mile is lower.
