Default There are no words....

This makes me sick.

In the video below, this woman walks up to a guy in a parking lot and she berates him for driving a Diesel Truck.

I would not have been this cool. Especially with my kids having to listen to her cussing like that. Someone should teach her about the mining for the battery materials in that Prius.....

Why does everyone feel like their opinion matters so much that they are entitled to be a**holes about it?

Sorry, but I really hate the smell and the black smoke a diesel motor puts out. There is nothing more then enjoying the top off my Jeep or driving in my Ranger and having the windows open on a real nice day and then.....to ruin that day.... have anything with a diesel motor pull up next to me and have to smell that crap. Why don't you sit in a garage and smell that for a few hours and then blow your nose and see what kind of black crap comes out? Breath real hard that deisel smoke and see how your lungs look. Not me...I will never own a diesel anything.
Sorry, but I just have to rant about that black smoke and smell.......

Black smoke? I think not, diesels burn just as clean as anything else nowadays. If you're blowing black smoke you're just wasting fuel.

A properly running diesel doesn't smoke at all. Mine doesn't. I drive a diesel because i get better milage than a ranger or a gas powered fullsize and my milage is not effected by pulling a load. As for tye odor, my wifes cavalier has worse smelling exhaust...

Diesels are a far cry from what they used to be. Naysayers are simply uneducated.

All the dipshits around here crank up the programers so they do blow black smoke. I know it gives the rest of normal diesel owners a bad rep.

^^^ That would be the difference between a programmer and an actual good tune.

The son n law's 2010 one ton with diesel does not smoke or smell at all. You have to listen close to even tell that its diesel.
