I think you underestimate the technology advances in Diesel that have occurred over the past 20+ years. The engines on the road today have a ton of new technology implemented rapidly - yes further improvements will come, but it will be incremental. Meanwhile gasoline technology is going just as quickly - direct injection, compression ignition and many other cool things are happening that are delivering big returns.
