Some help for a young buck
Ok gents, im new to the site and wanted some insight from the guys that have gone through this before. Im 19 and looking to get a truck this year. I live in Maryland so the gas price will be going the next couple of years up because of O'MALLEY. SO this go me thinking. I want a truck that gets good MPG ( something over 17 maybe) I like the new f150 ecoboost whoever the price of a used one is still in the 20's. Then I thought about the 7.3 or the 6.0 f250's. I know diesels get better MPG then gassers, however im not familiar with the maintenance of diesels.
The truck will be used as a daily driver. It will see some light towing (jet skies, 18ft boat, and occasionally the 23ft boat), and some landscaping work (cutting branches, movers....)
Would I benefit from a diesel or should I just suck it up and get an ecoboost or a v8 truck.
