I'm a little worried about the price gap growing. It's as much as $0.50 for me in PA. The biggest I've ever seen was $1 back in 2007, $4/gal for reg, $5/gal for diesel.

Even if I start breaking even, my 140hp 240ft-lb beats the tar out of the "eco" gassers. It's more fun than it has any right to be. The bigger 4-cyls never touch my mileage unless you legit hypermile and the little 4-cyls are severe dogs. They're all insufferable. I've driven them all, too many rental cars. I have nightmares of these soulless, bland Americars sawing away at my sanity as they aimlessly hunt for gears in a never-ending waltz of slushy groaning and point A to B.. transit. Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Fwiw the ~120hp diesels in Europe are dogs too and not so fun.

Yea, it got me about 3 times now. Like, it IS coming!? Oh yea, no. Mazda is taking orders on the gas 6, I figure in a few months they'll be taking them on the diesel, and I've given my old lady the green light on it. She's pumped. But they better not announce the wagon for the next MY after we take delivery of a sedan. I'll go into a coma.
