Some may wonder why I did this - install a 6.5L diesel in a Corvette. To put it simply - fuel economy. Not many cars can handle the weight, is streamlined, won't rust, yet retains its value, and is a sporty - fun car to drive.

I installed the engine in May of 2001, and have driven it about 3000 miles since then. We average about 48-mpg Canadian (40 mpg US), and have seen a high of 55-mpg (46 mpg US).
