I still just don't see why someone would pay a premium for a diesel when u can get a gas motor. The mpg on the diesel is only 21/28 int the 4x4 vs in a 4200 pound jeep. Most half ton are close to 6000 pounds so I'm still thinking it going to be close to maybe 18/24. With the Eco boost I'm around 19 average between city and high way. The only way I could see it being worth it is if you we're getting over 30 mpg
Thats kinda what I was thinking. The only way I figure it will catch on is if it can get close to 30 mpg
