if you tow light stuff under 6,000lbs a gas truck will handle it no problems, if you think your gonna be towing heavier stuff over 6,000lbs then a diesel is gonna shine and really get a lot better fuel economy, my 97 f350 was getting 16mpg combined highway and city towing 6000lbs 3-4 days a week with 265/75/r16's then I put very aggressive mud terrain tires on it in a 285/75/r16 and it dropped a lot and my injectors are have been getting worn out and slowly getting worse over 60,000 miles and should be replaced soon, but right now i'm at 12mpg driving very aggressively and towing anywhere from 6,000-16,000lbs which I really can't complain too much about, so new injectors and the truck will back to 16mpg and the injectors will pay for themselves over a few years.
