Isn’t It Time To Ditch Diesel? (Quick Answer: Yes)

From Transport Evolved.

Diesel engines have been around for almost as long as gasoline engines, and while gasoline engines have been preferred in cars and personal vehicles for many years, Diesel is still used extensively for larger vehicles.

But with yet another company accused of cheating in emissions testing (Cummins, which settled out of court in the U.S. for $1.67 Billion for its alleged deeds), isn’t it time to make Diesel as socially unacceptable as smoking?
