Everyones situation is different, which you haven't touched on. Is longevity on the short term. I average "working" between 26,000 and 35,000 miles a year working. In 4 years, on the low end, I top 100,000 miles. That to me on a gasser is unacceptable for trade or if I decided to keep the truck. I need someting that will last mileage wise, and possibly hold it's value more with the high mileage.

So a diesel is the ONLY way to go for me.

Don't get me wrong, it would be more beneficial to have a Jetta TDI Volkswagon, but how on earth could I hunt or Tow my Airstream?

I actually drove my parents 03 Jetta TDI to Elk camp (Went from Silverton, Or, to Dale, Oregon, long drive and didnt want to pay for fuel for my pickup). You would be suprised what those cars can get through. I went through mud and snow in that thing, and arrived in Elk camp easily. But I wasnt towing anything, they had the Army surplus tent setup and ready to go

Yep. Stock to stock, a gas truck can do just as much as a diesel and do it cheaper. Can a gasser make 400-500 hp with a tune? No way.

The reason I own a diesel is because I want to. Do I need one? No. Want one? Yes.

you cant really do the same with a gasser that you can with a diesel. To make the hp and torque is gna cost you alot more, and the longevity of the motor should convince anybody regardless or power. i have a 88 F250 with a 460 and i have my 7.3. no contest who wins there. my parents hace a 2500hd with 8.1 and a 3500 duramax. no contest there either. goes back to the old saying if you like pickups get a half ton if you have use get a three quarter ton if you have need get a one ton. same goes for gas and diesel. if your not working and just like the idea of having one get a gas but be prepaired when the money rolls out to make the power of a diesel
