We have noted before with a degree of perplexity that diesel automobiles that get great fuel mileage and are wildly popular in Europe have never been promoted here in the United States by automakers. Finally, we're glad to see that is changing, and the public is responding in a big way. Volkswagen is now aggressively pushing its Passat TDI diesel model, which can deliver up to 50 miles per gallon in highway driving. Auto industry analysts have said for more than three decades that Americans wouldn't latch onto diesels, partly because of the disastrous results back in the ...
