Forget the smoke billowing from 18-wheelers and the stench of a passing city bus, because diesel technology - as applied to passenger vehicles like the 2009 Volkswagen jetta TDI - has cleaned up its act
VW Jetta TDi 2009 Over 50 MPG
So I'm on my way home from summer vacation and it's a 10-11 hour drive over
two days. I decide to find out for absolute sure WHAT mpg this car can
get. So after a few hours on the road I pull into a truck stop (I realize
now that this time spent on the road in the beginning reduced the displayed
avg. mpg for the trip), found a small nozzle pump and start to fill up with
b5 diesel. The pump kicks off after a few gallons so, just to make sure,
I top it off just once. I pull back on the interstate, hit zero
congestion, and drive 116 miles at 60 - 65 mph. I then pull into the rest
stop. I hit the men's room (priority 1!) then went for gas. At the pump I
take it slow to try and minimize backwash. I do not try to top it off
this time. What you see here are the results.

up some kind of follow up video....

2009 Jetta TDI first dyno
Tuned by MALONE TUNING LTD http://www.malonetuning.com
Stock results on Dyno:
133hp and 225ft-lb torque (VW advertises 140HP).
After MALONE TUNING LTD remap ("chip tuning") on Dyno: 168hp and 315ft-lb torque
(without line smoothing) 163hp and 295ft-lb (with line smoothing).
This is one of the most conservative Dyno machines around, with
real-world no-nonsense horsepower + torque numbers.
The car drives as smooth as glass on the street.

Jetta Takes on Prius: Toyota Prius vs. VW Jetta TDI Diesel
MORE ON HYBRID VS. DIESEL @ INSIDELINE.COM:
We were locked in mortal combat, just as adrenaline-addled Leonidas and
hubris-filled Xerxes met at the Battle of Thermopylae, when a relative
handful of highly specialized Spartans held off a seemingly bottomless
torque-pit of Persians for seven excruciating days.
Here we have the 2009 Toyota Prius gasoline-electric hybrid, embodying
up-to-the-minute fuel-sipping methods and machinery intended to take us
immaculately into a spotless future. In the other lane, the newly
introduced 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI turbodiesel, a rolling relic of tried-and-true
yester-tech locomotion (upon whose sooty breath the Industrial Revolution
itself was built) that has been remastered, reengineered and reintroduced
to be meaner, cleaner and more efficient than ever.
But the battle left us weary — done in by the struggle and tired of each
other like Siamese twins on prom night.
