I am going to purchase a used truck. I am not necessarily in a big hurry, but the sooner the better I guess. I am wondering about diesel vs gas engines. What do you guys think? I of course will be using it my daily driver, but also hauling my landscape trailer around town 5-6 days a week. I know that diesels are supposed to be more fuel efficient and better for towing. I also think that all past maintenance being equal, the diesel lasts much longer. Other than the cost difference, Is there any reason not to get diesel? I plan to keep the truck until it becomes unreliable, maybe as a back up, or trailer only in 3-4 years. My total mileage is around 200-300 miles/week. Also, other than my mowers, I will occasionally be towing a small utility tractor. And I am not sure if that extra weight will be to much for a gasser? It would be no more than 2-3 trips/month with the tractor. Is that enough weight/use to warrant considering diesel? I don't want to spend any money that is unnecessary. But I also don't want to find out in a month that I need more torque!! Besides, who doesn't want more torque? LOL I think I am hoping you guys all agree that a diesel is an absolute MUST have. And then maybe 1 of u just happens to have a deal of a lifetime for me! Thanks for reading and any advice u give.
