efficient than ever. Our new generation of clean-burning diesels emit
97 percent fewer sulfur emissions than old-school diesels and virtually
no sooty particulates. They produce 30 percent fewer greenhouse gases
per mile than gasoline engines – while getting 20 to 40 percent better
fuel mileage. And they do it all while maintaining the traditional
diesel advantages of more torque and greater durability.
