1980 Oldsmobile Diesel video


Recommended Posts

I think the guy that does the voice over did voice overs for every Chrysler and Ford video of the 80s as well.

If they were that worried about fuel economy though, how come every car in the video is 18 feet long? But the message is valid. Diesels get better mileage and produce loads of torque and run forever. BMW can get 425 lb-ft out of a 3 liter while getting 37 mpg compared big V8s that make that much torque but get only 20 mpg. I don't know why more companies aren't offering diesel. Too bad Olds is gone.

18/27 mpg (using 2008 EPA figures) out of a 5.7 liter V8 in 1984.

Because that's what the public wanted. Olds had the best selling lineup in those years.
