The Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel Across America

Americans have not taken to diesel engined cars. Previously, the engines were noisy, unrefined, smelly and polluting. Today those issues have been minimised or eliminated. I have owned diesel cars and loved the even pulling power and effortless towing capability. I do not and will not own another one until the NZ authorities fix the unfair way diesels are taxed in this country. For everyone else, they are an excellent alternative to hybrids, in fact a better one at the moment.

Below is a of a video recently made of a Jaguar XF being driven across the US. It only filled up four times in 2884 miles (4661 kms) for 62.9 mpg US (8l per 100km). It is worth thinking about America....
