Part 2 of my "which engines would you like" poll. <p>I have noticed as of late that the price of diesel, which 6 months ago was anywhere from $0.25 to $0.50 more than PREMIMUM is now less than REGULAR. <p>I am not sure what sales of the Jetta TDi Sportwagen look like but I would imagine they are going to be robust. I would think that the D5 / powershift would give Volvo a huge boost for CAFE (do diesel MPG figures count? never thought of that) plus the offbeat Volvo wagon owner would probably be more likely to buy an oil burner than someone shopping a Q7, quite honestly. <p>So what say you?

After driving a new XC60 (T6) I wouldn't ever consider owning the new (POS) V70

Only way I'm buying any new Volvo.with the exception of the C30, is if they bring the D5 over. The gas mileage on most Volvos isn't up to par considering they recommend premium, and my 240 has been averaging 25-30mpg on regular, and its 17 years old. They bring over the Diesel, I would def consider one. Id say throw one in the V50 as well as the V70 and XC60/70

Re: Who would like a V70 or XC70 with a D5 (MenardVolvo)

I had a -07 V70 D5 and now have a -08 2.5T .<br>I definitely prefer the 185hk 400nm dieselengine compared to the 200hk 340nm 2.5T .<p>Great torque from bottom end with low fuel consumption.<p>Here in Sweden the diesels are heavily punished by roadtaxes, the D5 costs ca $800/year compared to $300 for the 2.5T . <br>The D5 costs almost $4000 more than the 2.5T....<br>
