I though I wouldn't get another diesel but after using our chevy 6.0 gas truck for a couple months now I don't think I'll buy another. The gas get 7-8 mpg and my diesels get 12-13 pulling and doing the same job. I was hoping to get 9-10 but pulling the trailer I'm averaging just about 8 or less.
Chevy duramax & vortec dump
Ford powerstroke dump

So true. When they couldn't meet the EPA regulations the Powerstroke died .. There's hope around the corner the 6.7 isn't the 7.3 but it rolls with punches..

Michigan has two seasons, winter and road construction.....!!!
