Could This Idea Save The Diesel Engine?

http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/ar...eveal.html

I seriously don't believe for one second that they are going to ditch the diesel engine altogether. Really? How are all the trucks, vans, buses, taxis & emergency services going to keep their fleets running if everything is on charge? Embarassed
Although i haven't looked in to this too deeply as i think it is a bit far fetched considering how the diesel engine has moved on over the years. Has this come from a numpty sat in his Ivory tower thinking, how can i feck this country by the time i am dead? Whistle Whistle

That's for measuring and logging emissions during testing. But you knew that... Smile "I am never content until I have constructed a model of the subject I am studying. If I succeed in making one, I understand; otherwise I do not" - Lord Kelvin
