    F.C.A. were using diesel motors to conduct emissions, then using the data for gasoline motors. F.C.A. knew full well what they were doing. Eight-hundred fifty million and still counting, "Without criminal charges" yet to come.

    Do you believe the Challenger shall be part of the recall?

    The Challenger doesn't have a diesel engine in it.

    The "diesel" engine has nothing to do with the recall, per say. F.C.A. were using 'diesel data' for 'gasoline engines', thereby fixing the mileage figures and emission control for "gasoline" motors. In other words, F.C.A. "FIXED" the M.P.G in gasoline motors with "diesel" motor data. I cannot be more clear than that.

    This will be interesting. It might be for just certain cars or trucks. My Challenger is right on the EPA numbers for a 5.7L. I get 19 mpg around town (mix of city/highway) and 23-24 mpg on long interstate trips. I'm not easy on the car but I don't beat on it either.

    * That very well may be. However, any affected vehicles will need the cats replaced and the prom reprogrammed. If the Challenger is in the mix, I will not bring it it.

    Supplementary Evidence:

    Diesel engines are more fuel-efficient and have more low-end torque than similar-sized gasoline engines, and diesel fuel contains roughly 10% to 15% more energy than gasoline. So, diesel vehicles can often go about 20% to 35% farther on a gallon of fuel than their gasoline counterparts.

    * Now, can any comprehend what F.C.A. tried to facilitate in a wrongful manner?
