Diesel has more energy in it per volume than gas so it will give you better
mpg.  My '90 VW Jetta 1.8 L turbo diesel  gets over 60 mpg on the highway,
and around 55 mpg in town.  And modern diesels are as clean as gas engines.

  I have a Prius.  It's a great road car and will outrun a stock B and do
it in comfort.  It's questionable about the turbo diesel doing better on
mpg; my Prius gets 45 - 50 mpg overall, including cruising on the road at
75 mph and it does it a lot cleaner than the diesel.

   As far as disposing of the batteries goes, you recycle them, the same
way any responsible citizen does with any battery.
