Diesel Vs. Hybrid...

When a dirty Diesel is better for the environment than an Eco friendly hybrid.

I stumbled onto the following page in my travels. Part way down the page is a table comparing the CO2 emissions of a VW Jetta and a Toyota Prius. The Jetta's CO2 pound/mile is significantly lower when run on either B80 or B100 (B80=80% BioDiesel, 20% petroDiesel, B100 = 100% BioDiesel). In fact B100 returns CO2 emissions that are over 50% LOWER than the Prius.
