Why did I get a Diesel?
Can someone remind me why I got a diesel and why I would ever buy one again? Every winter I have starting issues, here it sits in my drive while I go to town in a Chrysler Sebring convertible to get fuel for my Kubota tractor that is also a diesel so that I can finish moving snow from the house to the barn. The Kubota L4300DT sits outside NOT plugged in and starts EVERY time. Is it really worth all these issues? The cost for me to run it is not cheaper than a gas motor, my son has an old 93 Dodge W250 with the Magnum V8, starts like a charm.
My truck is a 2001 F350 Dually Crew Cab 4x4, it does have 290,000 miles on it, but I feel I've paid very well for every one of them!
Sorry for venting, I feel somewhat better now.
The temperature is -2, just west of Des Moines, IA.
