When I was at corporate being of the engamaneering type we did spreadsheets of the projected expens of gas versus diesel..what we found was that if one drove about 250,000 miles one would break about even..Of course we also knew that the diesels had more power for hauling heavy loads so what we did was use gas in all of our light rigs and just got the diesels for the guys who were hauling lots of equipment and tools all the time..

My personal truck is gas and has not proved to be a problem but then I also have an econobox for general errand running..
