My First Diesel

So as the title states I have never owned a diesel though I have driven them (work trucks) for years and Friday I bought my first one.

This past Christmas we bought a 30' travel trailer and headed to California to spend christmas with the in-laws. Well we learned real quick that my Silverado 1500 might of been rated to pull it but what was on paper and what was real life experience are two totally different things.

So in order to keep the kids and wife happy I upgraded to a F250 Super Duty.

I looked at Dodge and Chevy but neither compared to creature comforts of the Super Duty.

I found the forum because I was looking online to find out how long a diesel goes before it needs an oil change.

And I plan to read through as much as I can especially about my truck 2008 Super Duty F250 FX4 with the 6.4 because I have been reading a few horror stories about this motor.
