Would that quailify a person to have their mini in 8-lug magazine. After all it is the mag for diesel enthusiasts.  
it's more like a pebble crawler

my 2.0 really isn't all that bad. it is much stronger than the 86-93 model 2.0s and 2.2s. when i was a kid i had a 65 mustang fastback with a 302. i got pulled over so many times i finally decided that going fast just isn't where it's at. haha. i mainly just want the diesel so that when i pull up to a show with a mini that is rumbling with that diesel sound, it will turn some heads. because come on, how many old school  diesel minis do you really see out there. haha.

i get anywhere from 25-30 mpg right now, well when my tranny was working. haha. which is one reason why i love driving it all the time. my 04 f150 gets like 15. haha. sucks!

the only thing i don't understand is why in the hell is diesel so much more than gas???

A diesel mini truck would be great!  It wouldn't have a lot of passing power but it would be big on torque and big on MPG.  I think the only reason it hasn't happened is because of our governments CAFE standards.  Isn't that why we don't have VW pickups anymore?  They're still sold in other parts of the world.
