And as for the second, is diesel's specific torque greater on average than gasoline if one considers naturally aspirated engines only? An interesting question... then again, I don't think people that buy diesels are often motivated by how they perform, rather, how cost effective they are.
In Europe we buy diesel for both reasons, BMWs 20d, 6l/100km and 177bhp when needed, 35d with almost 300bhp, VAGs 2.0TDI 140/170bhp used for all the ranges it will soon be used in the Audi TT and is used currently in the Seat Ibiza and Leon FR versions.
