We've got some good news for those of you among our readership that are constantly clamoring for new U.S.-bound diesels, it's working! According to Marketing Daily, a new report by BrandIntel entitled "Shaping the Future of Automotive Engine Technology" shows that positive online conversations relating to diesels are up on the web (they must read our comments).

According to the report, discussion share for diesel engines increased by 75% in the US, compared to an increase in discussion of just 16% for hybrids. As automakers are complete suckers for marketing data, hopefully they'll hear our collective moaning and bless us with even more diesel-powered sedans. [Marketing Daily via HybridCars.com]
