I saw a diesel-powered car for sale but I don´t know anything about diesel. Do most gas stations carry this fuel?

no it will not, there is less refinery capacity for diesel (esp in UK). As it has become more popular for cars in europe it has become 5% more expensive than regular gas.

it costs 4-5 times less to refine diesel than gas, up til a few years ago it used to be cheaper than regular, now its about the same as premium

on the other hand you get better mileage, VW diesels get almost 50 mpg

if you buy a used diesel and start running bio-diesel in it, you will have to replace the fuel filter soon after cause the bio breaks up all the gunk in the engine, this is a good thing, check your seals too
you shouldn´t have to replace the filter again unless you run regular diesel for a long time and then go back to bio

most stations in the US have diesel

I was thinking this the other day, since not many drive them it would be the last to run out, and you can even run it off of home heating oil in a pinch
