I "saw and heard it" at Daytona. It sounded pretty darn good to me! It is amazing how much of the engine was left alone for those races (probably too much). A few issues. But, they are slowly ironing them out.

Hopefully they will make it to the American public at some point. All speculation right now.

Pretty cool to see a 4 door diesel sedan at Daytona!!

Thank you. I'm well aware of that. I posted the 14:1 gasser compression number to share with folks that the Japanese are doing things in a manner we're not accustomed to. I strongly believe their new gas and diesel technology will be succesful and possibly set new standards. Give them a chance.


The Japasese sell and market some great diesel technology we've never seen. I'm willing to bet the Subaru and Mazda diesels, as sold in the USA, will be tempting products...and long over-due. Let's kick back and see what appears on the horizon over the next 12 months

I believe the 14:1 compression ratio is ex-USA. I think the equivalent product sold in the USA is 13:1, FWIW.

Yes, 13:1 here to allow use of 87 octane fuel.

Thanks. That's sorta what I recall hearing. And an impressive feat to be able to run on regular!

I agree completely. The Japanese are very innovative. The cars they make are reliable and economical and I respect that. I expect the new Mazda Diesel will be the same. Hopefully it will be just as reliable as the old MB Diesels.
