As you can see, I am a ponderous person, trying to think of everything
before making a buying decision.
I am currently thinking about using a diesel vs a gas engine on 2500HD
It seems as though a diesel does not offer much better performance,
towing wise, on those 2500hd trucks, compared to 6 liter, and costs a
lot more. Also, my mechanic friend told be that once they go out of
warranty, repairs are very expensive -- for example an injector costs
a grand to replace.
Plus, I mostly use a truck for commute and occasionally for hauling
loads (stuff I sell on ebay) or towing a 5,000 lbs trailer, which
seems well within the capabilities of the 6 liter gas engine.
So... Is there some advantage of diesel that I am forgetting?
