California has the most cars in the U.S. so it stands to reason it would be on the list of the most of any category of vehicle.

Part of the reason could be that those 3 states have longer highways than others.

Diesels are the best as hybrid/EV vehicles have batteries that are highly toxic to manufacture and recycle along with requiring oodles of rare earth elements, which are also dangerous to mine.

for long distance w/out lots of redlight / stop'n'go traffic, diesel is the engine.

California, Texas & Florida Lead U.S. in High-Mileage Diesel & Hybrid Vehicles. Consumers have a growing number of choices for more fuel efficient vehicles and this analysis shows that clean diesels are gaining in popularity all across the nation. Diesel car registrations are up 30 percent since 2010 while the overall market only increased 3.6 percent.
*Cal, Tex, and FL are the bigger states too, surprise on the numbers of vehicles! **I will stay with my gasoline vehicle for now, I can't afford anything else for now! *Diesel has more BTU's, so mpg is much better than gasoline.
***My vehicle has manual door locks, hand operated roll up windows and wing windows in both front doors. It's Good to Go! NO Natural Gas, Ethanol, Electricity, Computer, Fuel Cell, Black Box, OR....... Diesel. It's been good to go since day one! **Putz!! bwaaa ha ha ha !...
Drive vehicles with high mpg, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

GFJ - "Flex fuel vehicles have the advantage with lower price but finding E85 can be a problem. Diesel would be my second choice if the price of diesel wasn't so much higher than gasoline."

You can't go just by the price per gallon. You've got to figure in the mpg to get cost per mile.

I've driven diesel cars in Europe. They get great mileage, have great passing power and except when you floor it they don't spew clouds of soot like they use to. Diesel engines have come a long way!
