Who Drives a Diesel?

I'm a recent diesel convert, and I absolutely love it. I was just curious as to who else was tooling around in one?

My particular diesel is a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta TDI, what's yours?

When I drive four wheels (not very often), I drive a 2000 Ford F-350 diesel, crewcab, dually.

I test drove any number and variety of such vehicles after repairing them for some 10 years or so ... does that count also?

I sometimes drive my Mum's car, which is diesel, when I'm staying at her house when I'm back from University. She has a 2.0 diesel Vauxhall Zafira, and before that she had a 1.6 petrol Zafira, and I always drive a petrol, and I have to say I prefer petrol as the acceleration in the diesel/driving in lower gears feels slightly more sluggish. Unless it's just that car.

Beats a Freightshaker...LOL [unless it was a cab-over. But I think that model is a conventional isn't it?]. I've been a Diesel Technician for 25 years now. Does that count?

Allow me to do an impression of Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now "God I love the smell of diesel in the morning!!!"

Okay, so it was napalm, not diesel, but you get my drift....LOL

I hear that. I've owned a few dirt bikes over the years. Honda CR-250, Honda XR200-R, and a Yamaha YZ-490. Never owned a street bike though. I'm too worried about all the idiots out there who act like you have a car wrapped around you when your on a bike. I'll take my chances gettin' crazy in the dirt. At least that way it's my own fault.

I used to do dirt riding; that where and how I learned to ride. I'm a little old for that now, at least for serious dirt riding. I do of LOT of on the road riding and your are right. It is dangerous out there.
