The black smoke you see from older or modified diesel engines is not the "bad" stuff that pollution testers measure. So black smoke doesn't necessarily mean bad emissions.
We are very pleased with our eco diesel, gets 22city, 27 highway, 17 pulling our trailer. It has all the creature comforts, and has plenty of power.
Not sure about the cow piss comment, the blue def that I put in ours looks and smells like water. The exhaust doesn't really smell like anything...and there is a regeneration feature that also comes into play to clean the particulate filter. 1 8 gallon tank of def lasts about 8000-10000 miles, depending on driving conditions.
The eco diesel made sense for us as we needed a large family vehicle, able to tow our trailer, that still had decent mileage.
I hope they don't get rid of the small diesel market for trucks, the Hemi Durango we had sucked the fuel (14c/18h). I wouldn't own a Hemi powered Ram for that reason.
