On newer cars, you don't have to worry about diesel engines in the winter. However, your other points are correct... good luck in finding a place that carries diesel when you're on a roadtrip, and the fuel gauge reads "E".kiteboy said:Not for me. Diesel isn't much cheaper here and harder to find. Fuel is much more expensive in Europe, so the cost savings is more significant. Also, it would have been tougher to live with a diesel in the cold winter we've had this year.
