    Dont worry, the govt doesn't really listen to him. For that matter he's been crying about the deficit for so long but nothing's happenned.

    In India politics always wins over everything else. So don't worry.

    Even if both diesel and petrol cost the same, the mileage of a diesel is superior and the cost saved by running 1,00,000 kilometers will recover what you pay as a premium while buying a diesel. even after additional maintenance is factored in.

    The subsidy on Diesel is contributing significantly enough to the country's fiscal deficit in a way that would make it untenable for any government to sustain it for long. In order to narrow this down, the government has to do either:

    1. Levy a one time registration surcharge on diesel vehicles.

    2. Introduce dual price strategy, one for agricultural and transport vehicles and other for consumer vehicles.

    3. Deregulate the diesel prices.

    Deregulation of Diesel, being a disruptive decision that would create a huge nation wide turmoil, the government may choose to adopt either of the other remaining measures in the short term. Irrespective of what they do now, deregulation of diesel is an eventuality and is something that is most likely to take place within the next 5 years. So lets brace ourselves for it.

    Now coming to its impact on Fiat, if that were to happen I can only think of the auto maker gaining from it. Consumers would suddenly appreciate the genius behind the magnificent T-Jet engine that extracts a whopping 114 bhp at 207 Nm of torque, yet delivering 12.5 kms to a liter from mere 1386 cc engine. Further Fiat can bulldoze the market with its outstanding multiair technology.

    So what Fiat would loose out on is the revenue they garner by selling MJD engines as OEM. I know that is what they are surviving on at the moment. However, I feel when that easy cash cow of their's disappear, that's when they would pay closer attention to their own cars and that can only benefit Fiat lovers and enthusiast.

    Hope Fiat would spare us the horror of witnessing the tragic automobile dichotomy of the century when see the the all gorgeous MITO (Alfa Romeo) and the all ugly ALTO ( Maruti) sharing a common heart (a Fiat Multiair 1000 cc). :eek:

    But buddy think from Fiat's perspective. The more they sell engine or technology, the more profit they make. Even now almost the same is happening in India. But people shouldn't get a feeling that Fiat is good only for making engines & not cars . Even I am of the same opinion that FIAT should /must have at least this Multi Air technology as their unique- exclusive only for Fiat cars.

    This Fiat never realize that ,first they dont know how to do business in india. they gave Punto engine to swift & vista and Linea engine to SX4 & Manza. they themselves creating competators by giving their core technology. Now new Multi Air 1000cc engine to ugly Alto & Wagonor. no body can save FIAT in india.

    She said the recommendations of the Planning Commission's Kirit Parikh Committee of an additional Rs 81,000 equaliser excise tax for small cars with engines of less than 1,400 cc should be implemented in the Budget for 2012-13.

    "This amount should be doubled for bigger cars for equitable sharing of burden," she added


    CSE calls for Rs 1.62 lakh extra tax on big diesel cars - The Economic Times


    Does this mean that Linea will be priced 80K more and Vento and all others will be priced more than that? because of 1.6L engines
    If this gets implemented then Linea can do more numbers
    What say?
