diesle will be more popular is the fuel prices in asia, america, etc get as high as they are in europe.

No it won’t. States in USA have stringent nitrous oxide regulations, which means diesel engines that would be fine for Europe, have to be fitted with special filter traps – that increases development and production costs – those extra costs are simply passed onto to customers. Therefore, diesels will never be favoured in any way due to USA’s environmental rules. And anyway, the USA hates diesel passenger cars.

There is no evidence to suggest that petrol prices will increase in other parts in the world to the extent that they have in Europe and specifically the UK. In Europe, the majority of the expense of fuel is due to taxation. But in other parts of the world, there isn't a culture of heavily taxing petrol. For diesel to catch on elsewhere in passenger cars, there has to be huge changes in consumer attitude’s on diesel cars. And in Asia, that will never, ever happen. In Japan and America, for example, they either favour petrol or electric cars – diesel is not even close to being on their radar’s.
