I'd buy a 50 mpg Cruze if the diesel option is not too expensive. I want to see what the real world mpg for both gas and diesel models are before I made a purchase.

Now THAT I would buy! Only have 190k on my TDI jetta and get 45-48 mpg with it and bought it new.

Have run diesels since to 70's.

Diesel is a little more that 87 octane around here. By the time you factor in the price premium (I'm assuming) for the Diesel version, Give me the Cruze ECO over a Diesel as of today

About friggin time.

If you're the 'do it yourself' type..can probably convert it to run on pure biodiesel(it would still run on normal diesel as well) then process the fuel yourself for roughly 60 cents a gallon.

I used to knock down 50 mpg in a 1980s diesel escort...why only 50 mpg with all the "new" technology? In 25+ years you would think somebody could manage 60-70 mpg even with added safety requirements.

A buddy of mine has an old diesel VW rabbit. Runs on French Fry oil. LOL it stinks but he gets his fuel for free.
