looking for some advice here. Looking to pickup a 2000 F250 / 7.3 / 6-speed / Crew-cab / 2WD / 140k Mi
I've never owned a diesel before but looking to start. I am an engineer and am drawn to the the diesel design and longevity.
We already have 2 cars (1 car and an SUV, and 2 motorcycles). There are 2 drivers in the household. I work from home and don't have a commute. Even then most of my errands are done on the motorcycle whenever possible. Typically on my car, i put about 4000 mi / year.
The primary purpose of the truck will be grocery.. and cruising around town
Main reason i am looking into it is just a whim - i am bored and looking to add a new set of wheels.
So, my questions are:
1) should i buy it?
2) Will i kill it because i don't drive it enough, and almost never tow?
3) What kind of mpg can i expect? 15?
4) Will it be a truck that i will just spend on and not use (i think so
Any thoughts apprecicated
