Default Re: New Ford Engine

Part of the reason we don't get some of those great European diesels is our diesel fuel has too much sulfur in it. Mercedes worked their way around it by using a very expensive filter that requires frequent replacement, along with some other complicated systems built into the exhaust. Too expensive and cumbersome for their Smart cars! lol
