Hi, I am new to the deisel world am and I am looking at upgrading from my Sierra 1500 with a 2500HD and the only real option seems to be a deisel engine. I will be using it for hunting and fishing, but mainly driving back and forth to work. I do haul some and pull a flat bed trailer on occasions. Can anyone tell me if upgrading this is worth it. Like I said I am new to the deisel world and I have heard lots of conflicting information about the costs, up keep and so forth. Any information would be grateful.

Are there any maintenance issues with the new duramax engines? I am looking to buy a new 2006 or 2007 when they come out, are there any changes that you might have heard of with the newer models? I have heard that you need to add some additives to the fuel for some of the diesels is this true?

Thanks for all the great information. I live in Texas and as I have been doing searches online for trucks, I see some that list the engine block heater. Being from Texas where we seldom have freezing temps, would you think this would be a mandantory item or just a good option? Sorry for asking so many questions, but I wnat to know as much as possible before I make the leap from gas engine to diesel, so again thanks for your patience and time.
