Diesel cars are becoming more popular among consumers. Today’s diesel vehicles have been redesigned and reimagined, making them a growing commodity for buyers. While diesel cars and trucks were once the relative outcasts of the automotive consumer market, diesel passenger vehicles are now the center of newfound demand. One of the main draws of diesel cars and trucks is their fuel economy. Consumers focused on saving money and protecting the planet concurrently often find that diesel vehicles are more fuel efficient than vehicles that run on regular unleaded gasoline. Although diesel costs more at the pump than other fuels, drivers who fuel up with diesel gasoline can save around 30 percent through improved fuel efficiency over regular gasoline. That can add up to considerable savings over time. According to Rushlane, demand for diesel vehicles in the United States was just 3 percent in 2011. It is predicted to increase to a minimum of 10 percent during the next 10 years. Why are diesels more efficient? Diesel engines are more efficient

than gasoline engines. Higher compression ratios than gasoline produce ultra-high temperatures that will ignite fuel injected directly into the cylinder head, according to BMW. Diesel vehicles are equipped to use more of the energy content of the fuel to produce output than vehicles that run on regular unleaded gasoline. It takes less fuel to provide the same power as standard gasoline. In the past, diesel cars were associated with black, sooty exhaust and clanking engines. However, today’s modern diesel cars are quiet and burn fuel more cleanly due to new technology. New, clean diesel fuel is the only diesel fuel being sold in the United States. Although diesel vehicles have been popular in Europe for a while, they have not been very appealing in North America. Things are starting to change. German-based Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi have a history of offering an extensive range of diesel-powered vehicles in the American market. Recognizing the demand for diesel cars and trucks, Chevrolet/GMC, Ford and Jeep are now offering diesel vehicles that they hope will attract a new legion of customers. Diesel-fueled cars have evolved through the years to be vehicles that can rival gasoline-powered automobiles on the roads. With superior fuel economy, diesel vehicles may one day surpass the number of gasoline vehicles.
