Hybrids still get more buzz, but diesels are gaining favor with car buyers. German automakers Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Volkswagen and Audi say they are encouraged by sales of the new breed of clean-diesel cars, crossovers and SUVs they are making for the U.S. Japan is poised to enter the market: Mazda announced recently that it will start selling its advanced diesel car in the U.S. in 2012. PHOTO GALLERY: See the German automakers' diesels Diesel engines offer up to 30% better mileage than comparable gas engines. But they were dismissed as smoky and noisy until the new generation of diesels went on sale in 2008. Sales also got a boost from a 2005 law that provides up to $1,800 in federal tax credits for diesel buyers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
