LOS ANGELES, Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In what may someday prove to be the greatest European import since Beatlemania, turbocharged direct injection (TDI) is coming to America in a big way. This extremely fuel efficient engine design has been popular in European counties for years, and thanks to progressive companies like MPG Car Rental, it is finally finding a foothold here in the States.

The twin pillars of TDI – turbocharging and cylinder-direct fuel injection – were first developed by Volkswagen Group. Direct fuel injection involves spraying atomized fuel directly into the main combustion chamber, while a turbocharger (often in conjunction with an intercooler) increases the amount of fuel that is injected and combusted at any given time. As a result, the TDI system reduces heat loss, increases fuel efficiency and torque, and lower emissions.  This advanced engine design is available in several models, including the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, available from a few select providers like MPG Car Rental.

MPG Car Rental has gained a solid reputation as the best car rental company in Los Angeles precisely because of its commitment to incorporating the latest and greatest technology into its fleet of green vehicles. Demand is sky-rocketing, especially in California, where more savvy consumers are looking for ways to save money and help out the environment at the same time. Conveniently located in Venice, CA, MPG Car Rental has carved out a niche for itself as the premier source for green car rental at LAX.

And soon you'll be able to find yet another choice at MPG Car Rental that employs a state-of-the-art TDI engine design. The company has announced that it will soon be adding the 2012 Volkswagen Passat to its fleet of hybrid car rentals.
