with an additional a heavy dose of " pathetic to drive "

what is the attraction ?

I'll believe it when I see it. When the NREL tested the VW Polo Bluemotion, the results were good, but nothing to write home about. I doubt any TDI, or any car really, is going to do everything better than other cars.
