Since the 6.0 and 6.4 Ford diesels are getting about the same fuel mileage as my 6.8 V10 gasser, not hard to figure with the added costs of maintenance plus the $8800 premium for that engine.
I saw somewhere today that it costs approx. $70 to fill an Accord, and roughly $85 to fill a fullsize truck. I can see things getting a lot uglier as time goes by as the prices climb higher. When people have to work for 8-10 days a month just to pay for the gas to get to work, well, people will start to revolt. Better stock up on locking gas caps and ammo for the shotgun...
In a while, Chet.
