It does remind me of back in the mid 90s when I had a Pug 205 Diesel, when lifting the diesel pump at the local garage an automated voice would tell me to make sure I knew I was putting Diesel into my car, and was I sure I wanted to do this?TDI 90’s are certainly more rare but I suppose how collectible Diesel cars are in the future depends upon how demonised the fuel becomes over the next 10 years. The way the Government is directly and indirectly penalising owners of diesel cars has to be one of the greatest acts of hypocrisy of recent times given how previous Governments promoted Diesel as the great CO2 saviour for so many years. The ‘eco’ choice!
I was reading about a new model introduction yesterday ‘three petrol engines, a pure electric version, and one diesel - although the company does not expect the diesel engine to be a high volume seller’. How things have changed in 3 years!!
Maybe in 10 years time the few remaining diesel drivers will be back to fighting over the single ‘black’ pump on the petrol forecourt with the HGV’s!?
