Diesel is the new tobacco. The Tobacco lawsuits became another cash cow for various government entities, and the VW settlement has already generated some questionable spending.

Strangely enough gasoline cars passed, for now, undisturbed even if their emissions, in special mode the ones from direct injection ones, of particulate matter was/is high.
It is so high that in European Union with new emissions rules, that lowered PM emissions to same level of diesel engines, now gasoline cars have installed particulate filters.

Gasoline cars from some manufacturers had defeat devices to pass emissions tests.
