Richard, this type of nonsense wilts under the glare of publicity, such as an article or editorial in Keller's most-read newspaper. You could interest the editor or a journalist in doing so, or write the piece yourself (there's good ammo in the above comments, and I'd be glad to copyedit).

THey're right in the lower emissions though. That's why diesels are exempt from emissions inspections. (at least in PA)

yep, have seen a few contracts that look at diesel as being more "green" i guess it sort of is in certain ways, but for a contract?

And ive heard someone say that you dont spill diesel like guys spill gas cans filling equipment..

Diesel or gas, we'd fill the machines with a pump and no spills and fill the little stuff with a can, and risk spills then.. thats all i know about it thoug.
