Why did you get a diesel?
So why did you buy a diesel? Whats your story?
Ill go first. I never really considered one before about 2003. Never knew about their efficiency or power potential. Just that they were loud and usually used to pull loads. When I started researching alternative fuels, diesel came up left and right. I joined another forum, and within a few years ended up getting my first PSD, the now totaled 95 in my sing. I the previous truck was an 02 Chevy 2500 6.0. Loved it, great truck but its got maybe 10 city and 14 hiway. With a new job it was motly the grocery getter and I was driving the car. In 08 I bought the 95. Minimal trouble with it, did almost all my own work, great truck! My Chevy was 300hp stock, and the 95 with 215 felt really darn close when warmed up. Learned that with the torque of a diesel HP numbers seem inaccurate or misleading coming from the gasser realm. I learned everything i know about PSD's from this place. When I bought it I know almost nothing about the 7.3. Thats all changed with the org!
