Just get Diesel driver to breath his exhaust while you breath yours. Last one standing wins!

I can't really see that there is a debate - LPG is greener and cheaper - or am I missing something here?
I let my mind wander for a moment......it never came back

My partner has a 306TD (sport!) which does a fair few miles between refills.. I have a Nissan 200sx which runs ~300bhp and this, on LPG, matches her economy. I'd imagine an efficient car running LPG would save some serious money over a diesel...

...but who wants an economical car, huh? :twisted:

My Rover 820 on LPG costs less per mile than a diesel Metro - enough said!
