Why are Europeans encouraged to buy diesel cars with cheaper priced fuel when we are told to get rid of ours?

The problem is the emissions from older diesels. No one is being told to get out of EU6 diesels. The only reason for getting out of them is the potentially high cost of maintaining their expensive emissions equipment. If fact, several manufacturers are now pricing petrol engined cars higher than diesels in order to pay the EC fines for the higher level of CO2 from petrol engines.
