That was really awesome as I keep hoping SOA brings us the turbo diesel. While he wasn't that fast, I bet he was averaging the best MPG getting there!
One question I have for anyone knowledgeable about diesels: I understand the MPG improvement and being able to run on lower octane diesel being overall better for the environment, but a lot of diesels I see on the road spew black smoke out the tailpipe when they give it the beans. What gives with that and is it really something toxic? Regardless, I want one.
