In NZ, until recently, unleaded was double the price of diesel. Petrol gets heavily taxed at the pump, while diesel users pay a tax per km. In theory, if you could go 51% petrol, 49% diesel then you would save 25% overall. But diesel gets 35% better mpg, so you would need to add another 17% to your km/$ figure. Australia is similar I think.

Can we call this myth plausible yet?
