Dodge 1500 Diesel????
« on: September 24, 2008, 04:36:52 PM »

OK  for years the only Pick up available in a Diesel was the 2500 and 3500.  Many years ago, GM destroyed the diesels in the US with that junk 5.7 and 6.2 Olds Conversions. 
 
Soap Box
Some of you who know me have heard me say the Americans are spoiled.  They don't want the smell.  They don't want the noise.  MY SUV will be a dog.  Poppy Cock.  Those same whiners are the ones who want 60 MPG, and no tail pipes.  A physical impossibility.  The conflicts these tree huggers create is incredible.    The new Dodge Diesels with all these "Voluntary" emissions systems are using more fuel, and running hotter than ever.  It used to be a diesel was cleaner than a gas engine except for the soot.   You are forced to pay an extra $1000 for the emission systems, and another $1000 to get rid of them.  But hte gain is 3 MPG and a cooler running engine.  I know very soon, mine won't be melting allot of ice.  I cruse now with exhaust temps down to 500 F, from 800 F.  Don't tell me I'm contributing to global warming
 
 Liberals. . . .  Bah  No common sense.  Make up your minds!
 
 
 
I have to commend Chrysler for taking a bold step in the market place.  They really want to become something again.  Loogout Ford
 
Here's what Dodge is up too.
