2 reasons to go for Diesel : 1. I always believe you should go one step ahead when you buy a house or a car (Apni aukat se ek kadam badhkar). Your status will change in a year, but you will not change your car or the house in a year, do you? I hope you got my message. 2. It's better to get a big heart attack once, rather than small small heart attacks everyday (while visiting a bunk). Dont think about diesel de-regularization. It will not happen. It will screw up India's economy. No government can take that chance. In worst case scenario, even if that happens, it will not make too much of a difference. Diesel cars always give better mileage than petrol cars.
