UK: Diesel sales will keep on growing says Bosch
Bosch this week predicted that every third car sold in the UK will be a diesel by 2005 and every other by 2008.

This is because fuel economy, tax benefits and a burgeoning appreciation for the high torque driving characteristics of the modern direct injection diesel engines we have helped create are driving demand up."
