Blaming poor quality fuel seems like a pretty lame excuse on the part of Mercedes Benz, considering that VW can continue to import and sell its fine TDI powered cars. My daughter has a 1999 New Beetle TDI, and it's an amazing powerplant: powerful, quiet, almost smoke free, and very fuel efficient. Large diesel powered trucks are very popular around here, too. I certainly hope that the political situation stabilizes, because I sure would like to be able to buy a new Benz diesel one of these days.
