New Beetle. 05 was the last year there were similar sized engines. 1.9L versus 2L.

Crazy! I never knew the VR6 wasn't strictly a V engine.

And the VW W-12 engine that's derived from the VR6 sure isn't a 'W'!

Here's the info: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/climate/420f05001.htm Diesel has 14% more carbon content, and so it emits 14% more carbon than gas per gallon. This means a gasser getting 40 mpg emits the same as a diesel getting almost 46 mpg. So I guess the claims by diesel advocates are generally inflated, though it must be admitted that a diesel will often exceed a 14% mpg gain over a comparable gasser. Sorry for asking a question I could have easily looked up, but I'm also interested in the overall impact of one fuel vs the other. If anyone has info on refining impacts, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
