Mike, am sure you are pure -- however unfortunately there are those in the "buff book biz" who are not -- and we all know (or at least strongly suspect) who they might be. However it is not hard to understand wanting your job! Hopefully someone will do a comparo of the entire diesel offering line at some point in the future that will include the four major players as well as the Jeep GC.
That would be a good comparo, and now that we have more players in the segment I am sure it will be done.

For the record, I've participated/written three comparos... and they are a royal PITA.
