Barely enough for the DS-5 lor. Is there nothing they can do to the PSA 3.0 V6 to get better power, torque and FC?

problem is that PSA seems to be switching to diesel for their higher power/torque engines for the big cars. Like that how?

The last time the diesel fuel issue was raised in the ST, LTA said that the main reason for not allow diesel-engined private vehicles is because the particulate emissions is higher than for petrol engines. With modern diesel engines this argument has become untenable.

The LTA is trying to smoke us. ;D
In fact the European diesel engines are cleaner and more efficient than the petrol ones. The high torque and less fuel consuming diesel engines are more suitable for city driving. The particulate emissions are mostly resolved by the particulate filter and regular servicing.

Perhaps the main issue for them is that our regional refinery facilities are catered mainly for petrol (gasoline) based market (asia pac) and high grade diesel is still limited. I will just hope that the diesel tax will go down... :

I think that Singapore motorists as a whole should keep pushing, arguing on the basis of better fuel efficiency and greener motoring. I'm sure that they already know all of the facts, but it has to be made public (e.g. ST Forum) and backed up by hard quantitative evidence so that LTA can't fob it off yet again. The lack of high grade diesel fuel is a definite road block though. But its hard to believe that there is no viable solution to that supply problem.

OK, so I'm going to backtrack a bit. I've just done some quick research online about diesel engines, and its not all cut-and-dried yet for diesels. Will start a new thread to post the resources so that we are all on the same page.
