Oh ok. They may still live there, but my parents moved from that house maybe 8 years ago.

Roger Wolf...what's he do for a living?

My wife's aunt and uncle used to hang out with Charlotte and Carl and her cousin went to dance school with Marie.

I like the diesels much better than the gassers. They are higher initial cost but when you sell them you will make that back.

I have used diesels for 30 years now and for length of life, low fuel consumption, torque/power and especially resale value they cannot be beat. Even my utv is a polaris ranger diesel it has a yanmar diesel in it. I have never had a problem with a kubota diesel engine. I also have john deere diesel in skid steers no problems. One great point is a diesel can sit six months you may loose a little cetane in fuel but will not matter unlike a gas piece that may be gummed up in 30 days or so

The reason I ask is because I keep reading post about it, the first time I heard I thought BS but after reading a lot of post I got that feeling because I have always been a fan of Diesel engines.. I want a 48" Diesel so bad!
