Diesel makes plenty of sense here (especially for our SUVs) and VW sales as well as new models being announced in droves lately are proving it. The fuel is readily available and with huge range and the internet at most of our fingertips that reasoning is no longer valid. Gasoline has been less available this past week in the tri state that's for damn sure. As more bus fleets and truckers convert to propane and CNG, diesel supplies should ease along with street prices relative to petrol. But even if they didn't 25-33% better fuel economy more than makes up the diff if there even is one to premium gas. Pricing is key and was a key factor of sluggish 335d sales- that and auto, RWD only.
