    Didn't the gas lobby in the US basically kill it? Why develop for something you can't sell in the biggest market

      Absolute eco madness.
      We already had diesel cars that ran really clean and wouldn't soot at all in the late 80s but they riled up normalgays, kicked off some hysteria and combined with the moronic VW drama we ended up with tons of vehicle bans and mandatory exhaust memes to the point where they are so restrictive the engines barely work anymore.

      They're promoting that diesel is absolute filth that kills women and children just by idling and we should switch to the latest new EVor ride the bus.

    It's incredible how incredibly hyped Diesel was in America back in the 00s and how quickly they fricking threw it under the bus.
    As recent as ~2010 or so biodiesel was still being hyped up, B20 was starting to be sold locally where I live, and school buses/trash trucks/city buses were all moving to biodiesel. The hype all died off sadly, we should have seed-oil powered diesel shitboxes right now.

    Each gallon of crude oil is refined into fixed percentages of different compounds.
    Gasoline
    Diesel
    Kerosene
    Asphalt
    Etc.
    These compounds are already present in the crude oil, refineries only separate them.
    Refineries do not choose which fuel "to turn crude oil into".
    So when less gasoline is needed (lockdowns, EV's) then less gasoline is refined, which means less diesel is refined.
    All crude oil products that society uses (heating oil, asphalt) will become more expensive and scarce as gasoline automobiles are replaced.
    Manufacturers saw the mandates decades ago and are aware of this so diesel has just been limping along to fill its roll until its also replaced.

      the frick are you talking about
      all you need to get 50mpg out of gasoline is a lightweight car. a fricking geo metro could get 50mpg, and a Toyota Sports 800 could get 73 mpg in 1967.

    ~~*safety*~~ regulations threw it under the bus
    ffs like 45% price of a new car is computer bs.
    and of course you can't build barebones drivers and mass market it because first you get fricked by lower co2/km "allowance" due to lower weight, and then you get fricked by euroNCAP because eurokaren decided you must add active safety bs or otherwise they will give your car 0 good brownie points
