Have modern diesel engines with almost nil turbolag (1.5L Renault K9K engine on B and C segment cars), with excellent refinement and fuel efficiency (1.3L Fiat Multijet on B segment cars) and the torque surge past a lower RPM (VW group 1.2L, 1.6L engines with truck loads of torque) impressed you enough that you won't be going back to a petrol engine, that over time, has been overly tuned to produce better fuel efficiency, than provide driver involvement?

Are you sub-consciously driving a diesel for reasons that extend beyond just the cost advantage? Would you go back to a petrol car or upgrade to another oil-burner when you turn your current diesel car in?
