What I'm thinking about...

Spanish adoption of the TDI diesel engine after VW invents it in 1989 (dark bar). There are a lot of cool questions to answer here. Why have they become so popular in Europe? Why are they not popular in the United States? TDIs are much more fuel efficient than traditional gas engines, so could TDIs be a better short-term environmental solution than subsidizing research in electric cars?
