 |  Dec 12 2012, 11:32 AM

A whole slew of new diesel-powered cars have been announced for the U.S. recently, and to help them gain mainstream acceptance, six German automotive companies are teaming up to start the “Clean Diesel. Clearly Better,” campaign, which hopes to educate Americans on diesel technology.

Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche, Volkswagen and the supplier Bosch are all part of the coalition whose goal is to bring an accesible information platform to teach the U.S. population about the advantages of diesel.

To do this, a dedicated website has been launched called ClearlyBetterDiesel, which features illustrations and animations that help to explain clean diesel tech. The website claims that diesels are 18 percent more efficient than gas-powered cars and debunks common diesel myths like diesels being loud and smelling bad. The campaign was developed jointly with the German Association of the Automotive Industry.

While diesel has been adopted very slowly in the U.S., it is on the rise. The fuel enjoyed a 127 percent increase in diesel car sales over the first nine months of the year, compared to the first nine months of 2009. New oil-burners on their way to our market include the Mazda6 diesel, Chevy Cruze diesel, Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel, and four new diesel-powered Audi models.

The campaign’s logo will be featured in advertisements, on banners, in TV spots, and in product brochures, and will “make its mark” at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

    Diesel and gas are not on a playing field.  Until the taxation is the same, then diesel will always be at  a disavantage.    Mr. Obama is not behind diesel, but electric instead.  Until he gets interested, diesel will always be an underdog.

    Hello gentlemen European
    engineers!

     

      Internal combustion
    engine, the diesel that the gasoline or natural gas emit massive amounts of
    heat, which warms the useless and poison the air. I suggest you innovative
    design steam amplifier internal combustion engine, and this amp, in fact, also
    the engine that using the heat exhaust, gives the power of higher than heating
    it with their exhaust motor. He once dressed with fresh water, and is working
    on it for months without refueling, the water is cooled down after the next
    cycle and force used very sparingly. The amplifier can be a rotating shaft, and
    the jet and used in aviation, as an amplifier of turbojet thrust in the Navy as
    a jet engine, in the water. If they replace the steam turbine, the motor with an
    efficiency of 98% will give power to three times more for the same fuel
    consumption. Now the essence of my proposal: let us build together my amp, and
    the morning at least capacity power plant, both in energy and in the automotive
    industry. This has in the world, no one did, and the cost to develop is only a
    few hundred thousand dollars.

    Add another – an invention has a
    second purpose, in a reactive form before the engine on the intake pipe is a
    high vacuum, and a jet engine high pressure. Given the power of the engine, I
    would suggest that the rate of submarine or torpedo will be higher than the
    rate of sound propagation in the atmosphere, under water. That is of a nature
    to stop such mechanisms in nature do not exist. And in aviation my motor will
    not leave a trace of heat.

    I’ll give you a full description
    of the amplifier, with all drawings and diagrams without any payment, you in
    turn by its own design department will create drawings and assemble prototype
    spend all test it and then pass me a set of documentation. A patent we get
    together with any of your design team of 50 to 50, you like the idea of ​​the developers, I – as its creator, for which pre-sign an agreement as a
    partner in this project.
