Diesel looks more costly to repair the only good thing is fuel MPG and maybe towing. Gas mpg sucks around 9 -10 mpg cheaper to repair. Tough to decide between the two evils I would think you would get more out of a diesel motor.

What I am seeing is that the profilers that bought the big trucks for the "cool factor" are selling those off..Those of us actually have to haul something are keeping ours..Now I do see some of the guys like me getting an econobox P/U or small car for general errands..
