    I have an EL model 17' uhaul van..(E350) idi non-turbo 7.3l ... No issue other than filters...20 bux every 30k...not even an issue...i buy the oil when it goes on sale 4 around 11 bux a gal of delo or tection extra... But the big diff in diesel if u wanna point out the big plus is the ability to use multiple fuels...mix kerosene from craigslist with sum trans fluids or engine oil and ur set...Cooking oil is everywhere...Plus just about any shop will give u waste fluids... Maybe nt so much for a new truck...But will do fine in an older ford or dodge... It is about preference...And i prefer getting free fuel and i prefer diesel...Just less stuff that breaks..Everything does break...But a diesel will give u time before that happens... Oh and my 11k lbs truck plus 7k lbs in bk still gets 15mpg in town..and i could still tow another 10k lbs...almost 30k lbs and 12mpg...no brainer...
