Do you own a diesel? Most people I see quoting this have never owned a diesel. Yes my oil changes cost about 70 dollars more, but with say three oil changes a year that is only 210 dollars extra a year. Fuel filters are another 50 a year, so the "Much higher maintenance" costs are about 260 dollars a year.. i save that in fuel in a couple weeks over my gasser.
I will agree with you that when things go wrong, it is much more expensive to fix engine problems
