95 E-350 Sportsmobile 460 to Diesel
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask this question; I'm a bit new to all of this. I have a 1995 Sportsmobile (Ford E-350 with Quigley 4x4 and lift) that is currently on the stock 460 gasoline engine. Currently traveling through Chile, but planning on returning to the USA with it in the next couple of months. Every time I fill up I can't help but notice that the cost of diesel here is about 2/3 that of gasoline.
I saw a couple of posts here regarding converting to a diesel engine, and my understanding is that this would give me generally better MPG (I get about 10 right now) as well as improved torque. Is this a correct assessment? Is it worth the effort?
