    Haven't you heard? People are greedy!!! Plus you have to consider how much it takes to fill an 18 wheeler each tank full. More money!!!

    hahahahahaha (manic laughter)......

    Diesel prices....a topic close to my heart....I wish that I could pay $1.75 a gallon! Over here in England, 1 litre of diesel costs me £0.77, or $1.25!!! That's $4.75 for a US gallon (3.8litres)....

    I filled my truck up a few days ago...cost me a cool $130....no wonder I'm broke!!!! No you kow why I drive around in 1.3litre Suzuki SJ413 most of the time...

    I have been driving chevy diesels for a long time. It seems that the price ALWAYS goes up in the winter, (along with the the price of home heating oil.) It then goes down in the warmer months, cheaper than gas. I guess it all evens out in the end.

    Well I know in Europe the gas prices are high in General but I remember in France Gasoline was twice the Diesel fuel price, and with twice the consumption it's more like 4 times more overall, that is why 90% in France have diesels or want to at least.
    Isn't it the same in England or close?

    Same price as the high octane, just west of Nashville along I-40. I spent 30 dollars which put a little over half full in my GMC 2500 Van. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    In reply to the questions about the diesel in France / UK...In France, diesel cost about 1/2 the price of petrol. But in the UK, alhtoguh diesels are getting more popular, ther is no real incentive to drive them. That said there are some amazing diesel engines appearing. The new VW SUV (the V Touareg) comes with a 4.9l V10 turbo diesel with 313hp and 550lbs/ft.

    Personally, I would have bought a gas v8 Blazer if it weren't for the stupid gas prices here...love that V8 sound. That said, I can;t fault the 6.2. More power than any diesel I've ever driven, and 600miles to the tank isn't bad! And I do like the smell of diesel in the morning /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Around here (Mid-Mississippi) gasoline is about $1.60/gallon, and diesel is $1.79/gallon!!! I miss the days when $30.00 filled up the tank, instead of $85.00!!!

    Diesel here in Norway is 4,78 dollars for a gallon(US)!!
    And we have oil from our own platforms offshore!
    But colored, untaxed diesel is cheaper... The fines are not to bad, and you are "never" controlled with a small car, they are after the big rigs.
