Very Good With the Right Fuel: 2004 Volkswagon Passat TDI Wagon

A review and explanatin of the Passat. As new alternatives for fossil fuel vehicles are being explored the focus seemingly has become very narrowly channeled to one primary alternative; gas electric hybrids. This could cost consumers down the road as disposal of dead battery packs becomes an issue. Diesel powered vehicles may well be a better alternative particularly in light of the developing technology of the biodiesel fuels, and the reduced pollution and emission levels with other forms of fuel.
