Before € small things were sold for 1DM now for 1€ no one would sell a thing that price was 5DM nor for 2,50€ because that feels insufficient!


the same here...
only my net salary has never been increased

Where I live right now its about $3.45 a gallon. The google tells me thats equal to about .6989 Euros per liter. Thats for regular 89 octane gasoline. Diesel is always (and has been for a few years) more expensive than gasoline. Not sure by how much, dont pay attention to it much. Maybe $.80-$1 more about.

Ouch thats brutal. They just have a crazy amount of tax on it? I would think it would be lower as they dont have to ship the crude as far..

Diesel is more by I think about $1 per gallon. I think thats all in the taxes to make businesses pay more as theyre the main consumers of diesel. I see all the diesel and turbo-diesel cars trying to come to the U.S. and they're pointless imo. IN an area where diesels cheaper OK but here diesels more and theyre not really any more fuel efficient than regular gas or turbo-gasoline engines anymore so why buy them? :P

Yes it´s really bad! Tax per liter is around 86 € cent wacko ! And yes they use it to pay the national debt angry ! <-- Well I think so.

Diesels are more economical than petrols! I would say at least one third! At the moment I´m driving an Audi 80 TDi with 1,9 Liter capacity and it takes about 5 liters (1,32Gallons) per 100 km on highway perhaps a little bit less. The same car with Petrol will need 7 to 7,5 liters (1,95 Gallons). In the city the differences will grow more. I have to drive like an ill idiot to push my Audi to 7 liters (1,8 Gallons), I think it´s not possible. But a petrol car u would push easily to 11 or 12 liters (3,2 Gallons).

The other good thing of a TDi engine is that they show there full torque at very low rpm! A TDi get´s his best torque at perhaps 2000 rpm and a petrol engine at 3000 ore 4000 rpm. And a TDi everytime has a better torque than a petrol with same capacity.

But in Germany it´s almost the same like in US. During the last year the Government pushes the price of diesel at the same level like petrol; a little bit cheaper. And the tax for a Diesel car is higher than for petrol car. And everything just to push the buisiness and to force the people to buy other cars now and so on ... But it´s all for the nature and mother earth!!!! catch it wink ?! The baaaaad CO² B). It´s really ... to upchuck >(.

One of my greatest wishes is to have a car with a V8 because that growling sound is so amazing smile ! Well perhaps someday sad ...

5 liters per 100km = roughly 47 miles per gallon. Thats not a huge amount more than some regular gasoline cars, and hybrids can get around 50 or so depending on which one youre talking about. True they do have more torque though. I know the 2011 Mustang is a 4.0L V6 engine and it gets about 40mpg (5.8L/100km) ideally (however their claims are always off by around 2mpg or so imo) and simultaneously it develops ~300 HP. The 2011 Prius gets around 51mpg (4.6L/100km) and the Honda Civic gets about 44mpg(5.3L/100km). And they both have regular gasoline engines. Then with diesel being more expensive here it negates the savings by slightly higher efficiency :P

Around here there arent a great many diesel mechanics so they charge crazy high hourly rates for engine work too, around $90 per hour for labor compared to $30-$50 per hour for gas engine mechanics so it just doesnt seem worth it to me. Its probably different in Europe I presume though. Lot more people have diesels so I bet its more competitive so lower prices smile

My next car WILL be a V8, no question about it. The higher horsepower of smaller euro and Asian made engines appear nice but they have no torque! My car has 200HP but 220ft-lbs of torque smile Torques what wins races and gives you that lovely feeling in your stomach biggrin Soon as I start working full time Im gonna start saving for either a used 2011 Mustang GT ( 5.0L V8) or maybe a 2015 Mustang smile Theyre supposto be completely redesigning the Mustang for 2015 surprised Im excited!

Just searched a bit and our tax per gallon of gasoline is approximately 46 cents per gallon, thats only about $.12 per liter. You guys make me thankful our gas is so "cheap"

Edit: Lampo youre still paying for a war from the 30's? o.o Thats crazy! I think if they started trying to pay off our (massive) national debt by taxing our gas prices the way they are in europe there would be riots... BTW Lampo what is that called what you drive? I don't recognize that brand.

Yeah....I thought about it all day and had no idea. I knew it wasnt American or British. I thought maybe German or Japanese so then I googled "lightning car logo" and its an Opel! I didnt even know Opel still existed! I've never seen one here in the US :P Guess thats what I get for living across the pond hehe

Anyway I hope your Opel is better than the Opel Coupe's from FH, they suck ass -.- Horrible steering and slow as poo ahahaha

Hey GreenShift!

I´m shure you have driven an "Opel" wink . General motors bought Opel sometimes, I mean to remember after the war. The same procedere as Daimler Benz and Crysler.
I had a few Opel and on the engine allways was "General motors" biggrin .

Lampo's Opel Astra H also is known in USA and was being sold as a Saturn Astra. UK has Vauxhall Astra mk5, Brasil marketed Chevrolet Vectra GT and Australians offered Astra as a Holden AH Astra.

So it is highly likely that you have met that car on your road smile
