I tanked up the Jetta at the full-service pump last night. I figure the extra couple of cents per litre is worth it with Diesel, to avoid the stink on my hands and soles of my boots.
I joked with the pump attendant at how expensive Diesel has become - a buck thirty-three compared to a buck twenty-two for Regular Unleaded.
Pointing to the BMW X5 in front of me, he said, “Only rich people can afford Diesel!"
I guess if you want your fuel economy, you just have to pay for it.
