MBUSA is willing to bring diesels into the US market. The dealers have no desire to import because they would have to cover the cost of certification through lost margin and since a lost sale of a diesel generally means the sale of a gasoline model they are satisfied. Over the life of a car, dealers make about 5 times the profit on a gasoline model as on a comparable diesel model.
