The best thing to know about a PSD is you will LOVE it.
Maintenence is more expensive. One quart shy of 4 gallons of oil and a 20 dollar oil filter every 5k miles or whatever change interval you choose. Fuel filters are pricey too. But thats about it. The fuel milage on the 6.0s is great! (if you can keep your foot out of it) My computer was reading 23-24 this morning on the highway - i was only driving about 60 cause traffic was congested. some guys clain those computers lie real bad but mine seems to be withing .5 mpg and it reads high so if it says 23, i'm getting 22.5 or so.
