While I agree that the MB diesel is much quieter I doubt the Toyota version will try to match that. Afterall it is going in a TRUCK and Toyota probably won't want to pass on the extra cost to consumers.
Hell look at the set packages they offered in my Tacoma
I would have liked a V-6 choice as well as alloy wheels and outside air temp but that only came on a Pre-Runner so........ I settled.
Still happy with Toyota this is my 9th or 10th one but sometimes they just forget about you unless you buy the top of the line model which is probably where the diesel will be available in the US.
Ok, your probably right about... ...ok, 99% of all that. That is a completely reasonable explanation. I could see that the smell would really be a problem if you don't like it. I agree with you that the diesel will probably be in the trucks and nothing else (Toyota is concentrating on hybrid and fuel-cell technology for cars). I am just hoping that the diesels are available in the low end models as well (I would actually use it ).

If you do get one please don't come to Orange County, California and drive in front of me while I'm riding my bike the 200+ miles I cover here weekly and especially up hill?

Hey, I used to bike in Colorado. I share the road. Besides, I have never been to California. If I did come to Orange County, I would want to ride your route. Then you could leave me in your smoke trail...

Not sure how I missed this thread but....

One of my good friends drives a 1986 HJ60 Toyota LandCruiser here in San Diego. (long story on that)
Anyway he has been running B100 Bio_Diesel and his LC does not smell bad at all.
In fact it smells slightly of french fries which cracks me up.

He is actually getting Bio-Diesel cheaper than regular unleaded, so the argument of all diesel fuel being more expensive and smellier is pretty much mute.

Yeah, I know of stations in Austin and Houston that sell B99 (99% BioDiesel) for about 5-10 cents less than Unleaded Gasoline. Add that to the fact that the B99 gets you about 35-40% more energy/mass and you have a very cheap engine to run with much more power...

Too bad there isn't any talk of a D4D Tacoma coming to the US anytime soon...

I agree. His mileage with the big 6 cylinder diesel is 22-24 mpg . That is great considering a gas FJ60 gets around 12.

Still I would settle for a 4 cylinder turbo-diesel that got closer to 30 but had less torque.

Me too!!! Especially if I could run it off of domestic bio-diesel!
