help me,

well my brother is getting a truck.
im telling him he needs to get a diesel.
can you help me to convince him why diesel is better than gas,
tell him that 150,000 miles is nothing to a 7.3.
thanks.

giving the same class vehicle: Better MPG by about 30%
average life expectancy, Diesel last 2-3 times longer
average maintenance is less

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

first off i have seen trucks with less then 50k in the shop a lot and then you have the ones thats trucking along with 300k plus no prob it is all in how you treat your truck bottom line and as for the 7.3 they are good motors and strong motors at that
