ULSD has been the only highway motor fuel available since October 2006....
I think there's a phaseout that lasts until 2010, but practically speaking, you are right. I was confused because of some stuff we have going on here with the phaseout of high sulfur off-road diesel. My bad.
i have a 2006 Jetta TDI, ordered it with top of the line interior package, came to 26,500 (also ordered it without automatic transmission- this saved close to 1800)
Got it in August 06-it now has 28,000 miles. I get 48mpg driving 1/2 city and 1/2 highway on 35 mile commute to work, top speed about 65 for 10 miles (no interstate hgwy)
My friends in Scotland have owned diesel BMWs for several years- same in Germany where all my friends who have a car have diesel. Diesel is MUCH more proven than hybred.
Think diesel is smart way to go and IMO diesel vehicles in u.s. is increasing >20%in next ten years. Son has 02 VW gas(38mpg), friend has 05 tdi(53mpg). The VW TDI is excellant bargain and especially with diesel less than 87 octane at this time---good luck
