cos you lucky chaps have such cheap gas there is no big advantage in running diesel fuel cars no matter how good they are..dont forget that we still have taxation without representation over here in the UK!

Many states (e.g. California, the largest vehicle market in the USA) have vehicle emission standards that diesel cars cannot pass (especially for particulates), so there are very few new diesel passenger cars offered for sale in the US market currently. We may see this change in a few years though as the standards evolve and the diesel cars become cleaner.
