    They say 10s of thousands of lives lost due to nitrous oxides.
    How many lives have been saved by the less volatile diesel fuel NOT turning every accident scene into a fireball?

    Diesel has been 106.7 at local Asda outlets for a while but petrol has varied between 109.7 and (on Monday) 107.7.

    That RACF report seems to have a basic flaw though "The RACF says that, at this rate, diesel will be four times more popular than petrol by 2030." - which ignores the fact that the popularity of diesel cars has been slowing.

    Dawwn sarf I've noticed the price of diesel has levelled at around 112, despite the low oil prices and the Saudi 's attempt at deluging the market to kill off US competition (mainly from fracking).

    Which part is not going to happen DD price hype or shortage. I guess that the likes of India will provide any shortfall in our own supply but not sure the price will hold.....
