The Prius kicks TDI butt in emissions and you know it. Welcome
back to the thread already in progress
If you look at post #753, I left some URL's that show the VW diesels to be cleaner than the Prius.
I find your above statement to be rather silly considering that VW/Audi got the Green Car of the Year Award.

When they cannot beat the world record set by the VW TDI they get on some other hobby horse with a broken leg. If the Prius people are so sure of their emissions being cleaner, I would suggest putting a Golf TDI and a Prius each into sealed garages running. So as not to kill any Prius owners we could use rats. And see which lives longer. The hype about clean hybrid emissions would soon be history. CO will kill faster from a Prius gas engine than a VW diesel engine.
Burning fossil fuel of any kind has negatives. In the big picture diesel is the most efficient of the fossil fuels on a per gallon basis.

We are WELL outside of a comparison of the two vehicles and firmly into "hybrid vs diesel" and personal beefs which has shut down discussions before. This discussion is going on a "time out" until I can clean up the mess and then I'll consider bringing it back.
Comments dirercted personally at other users are not acceptable, and that's where we always seem to wind up when "diesel vs hybrid" comes into play.
If this discussion reopens it will be for comparison of the two title vehicles for people who are shopping between them. It will NOT be yet another battleground for people trying to "prove" anything about the relative evils of diesels vs hybrids.
