Oh my, yeah I remember glow plugs.  And crappy vacuum pumps. 

I also had cars with generators before they had alternators.  Corvairs and my ever loving 64 VW Bus with a 6 volt system.

My father had an old (think it was an '80) Mercedes 300D.  An uncle of his picked it up in Germany and had it shipped to the states.  It was hard to stand behind with the fumes.  It also had that familiar knock.  You knew it was a diesel from across the street.

We have one of the last diesel BMW X5's made.  It was labeled a 2015, but manufactured during the 2016 production run.  You would never know it's a diesel unless you read it on the side of the car.  If you listen, you can hear a diesel engine sound...but only if you're really listening for it.   We bought it when the kids (both 5'11") could no longer sit in the back of our cars and were getting ready for college (we correctly assumed numerous move-ins in our future).

The hands-down best thing about the car is the range.  It is the greatest road trip car I've ever owned.  We can get close to 700 miles after filling up.  Living outside of Philadelphia, I've made it to northern Maine, Montreal, Ann Arbor Michigan, and almost to Georgia without stopping for fuel.  It's also great because you can fill up in civilization, and know that you can drive as much as you want in the middle of nowhere and not need fuel.  It runs at 70 MPH at around 1,500 RPM.   It's literally idling on the highway.

The studies on the emissions are mixed.  Most of it depends on which chemicals you measure and the temp at which you are measuring.   It is definitely not my father's diesel.

$6.19. For Diesel.

The diesel version is 35% more efficient (MPG) than the gas engine, so you could argue it's around $4 per gallon.  At least, that's what I tell myself every time I get fuel.

electric Chevy Malibu?



2017 Chevy Volt (not Bolt). Beloved by all who have one. Despair that they stopped making them.
All battery for about 50 miles, and then it turns into a hybrid battery/gas Prius for another 200+ miles. Never any range anxiety, and no one uses more than 50 miles in a day so you charge at home each night and the gas sits untouched except for big trips.
Add all weather floor mats, LED internal lighting, lighted charging port, and a Bose stereo - and you've got one happy camper.
Oh - and people take it camping, since if you have a place to plug into a socket you can run the AC or heater all night without turning on the combustion engine...

I honestly don't know, I buy it at the same place because it's always the lowest price or tied for it in the area.
