Is diesel worth it?
 
Is it really, I know you get fuel savings but then you have to factor in the additonal taxes because of its polluting nature, pluse replacing the scrubs and urea it all eats into your savings. Not exactly sure its necessary..

It may be worse for the environment but you use less of it so it evens out. I'm not sure if it is cheaper always, but it must be darn close. Someone would have to do a longer term study to really figure it out. I think Dacia wouldn't want to do anything that would make the price of the Duster go up. The low price is the biggest selling point.

diesel is a good option

lots of torque from small displacement and amazing range for the amount of fuel used.

HIgher price and no access to the technology make this unlikely. Otherwise it is a nice idea.

It may not happen now or any time soon. I think Dacia needs more time for more growth and then they might look into more alternatives like this.

the duster already sells as a diesel....

Thats why i asked if it was worth it. When all is said in done the costs you scrub from fuel spending ends up getting channeled back into the car in the form of maintenance of the diesels emission systems.... not to mention up front taxes.

But they're also known to be more reliable. Maybe it's better to only own a brand new diesel for a few years at a time before you have to do the major maintenance stuff?

I think diesel is going to slowly make a comeback in the coming decade
