Ezra Finkin, director of policy and external relations for the Diesel Technology Forum: "We are excited to see diesel-powered passenger vehicles hit about 3% of state registrations," he said, as people look for improved fuel economy, and predicts that number will reach 7% within eight years. He pointed out that 98% of the medium- and heavy-truck market is diesel powered. "With the first heavy-duty fuel economy/greenhouse gas standards in place this year through 2018 and the administration already thinking about a second rulemaking, I think you're going to see the emissions and fuel economy benefits of diesel increase. Already they're looking to raise that bar using systems such as waste heat recovery and hybridization to boost fuel economy from 10 to 30%."
