Fuel prices rising.. Time to sell???

With diesel prices rising and not likely to go down. Is this a good time to sell your f250 if you dont want to take a extra 5k-10k hit when you go to trade it in?

Give me y'alls 2 cents

I debated this also ...I stayed diesel even though I really don't need the towing limits.
I'm just hoping the prices come back in the low to mid $3's at some point

Even if you sell now, you're going to take a beating on the price. If the price of diesel isn't breaking your bank, don't worry about selling. If it is and buying a beater car (Civic) isn't an option, then you really need to consider installing a Vegistroke or making biodiesel.

** On edit - just saw you have an 09. BFT is very close to perfecting their Vegistroke kit for the 6.4

No it is not a good time to sell reason being that when diesel goes up in price and becomes expensive the resale value of your vehicle goes down. The same thing applies to your large SUV and Gas burning trucks. The KBB and NADA value go down because they believe that there is less demand for them due to the increase in fuel prices.

Nope - Not a good time for reasons stated above.

Not even thinking of selling. One, I'll take the hit. Two, why would I want to sell a vehicle I like driving and use to tow my 5th wheel for an econo-box that I don't like driving and won't tow my 5th wheel? Speaking of 5th wheels, would the resale value of that go down as a result of higher fuel prices because a bunch of people are selling their trucks capable of towing it?

I had a guy at work ask my why I didn't buy an econo-box instead of paying the high price for diesel. I said because I don't have the money to buy one out-right, means I would have to finance it. The added payments + insurance just to save fuel isn't an option because I could use the money I would spend on that to buy diesel. No extra payments for a car or insurance. He looked at me funny.

Judging by some of the asking prices, I think there's a lot of diesel owners who either don't get it or are REAL proud of their trucks.
