Bio-diesel can be used for an ecologically sensible choice~

Economically a Diesel is the way to go at present, just keep in mind that a Diesel will be more expensive to repair that a Gas engine if anything should happen, Diesels are noisey even today, that is why they call them "Rattlers" performance has increased on the newer Diesel's but be careful about hopping out into traffic. Make sure during fill ups that they are putting in Diesel and not Gas, I can't remember how many times I was called to a Station to take Gas out of someone's Diesel car. Hope this helps.
