I guess you guys all drive gasoline cars. Can you buy diesel X5 s in The States ??
Gone are the days when diesels had the reputation of being slow and smelly. I drive a 3.0D which has a straight 6, turbo common rail engine. I had it chip tuned and it pushes out an awesome 500NM torgue. I get an incredible 8.5 liters/100 KM ( not sure in Gal.) and that is traveling between 90 to 100 MPH.
I would never consider buying a gasoline SUV. They are far too thirsty.

(Forget the Kerosine story) it is illegal ofcourse.
