I only use diesel. Gas motors don't last long enough for me and break down all the time.

I have five trucks. The last truck I just replaced a month ago was a 1989 F 250 gasser and I had to replace motor at 75,000 miles. I replaced it with a 2003 Dodge 2500 HO Cummins diesel with 8" Fisher X-Blade. I also had other gasser years back before the diesels started becoming popular and they to did not last long. I run my trucks very hard. They only see a trailer out back, plow on it, or load, I don't use for rec. just for my business. This why I buy diesels. I have a 1990 F 350 diesel and has over 150,000 miles and still running strong, which is my oldest truck now. Diesels are proven to last longer than any gasser and this what works for me Grassdaddy. Also Grassdaddy diesel trucks get better mileage and fuel costs are less.
