He's got that right! Had mine for almost one year now and I've put in probably 4 grand or so. I was just telling my coworker he needed to buy a diesel and he'll never go back because that's what I've figured out. The gas can stay in the wife's car...

I only buy gas for molotov cocktails for the days when I want to be an undocumented shopper aka looter. That is quite rare.

All the more reason why more diesel trucks should be replacing gasoline vehicles to keep gasoline out of the hands of undocumented shoppers.

Just got mine 2 months ago after owning 3 gas trucks . I'm still kicking myself for not buying a diesel years ago. I will never go back to gas now , I love driving my truck and find myself coming up with excuses to go out so I can drive it. Haha!
Congrats man !

Well I will say since owning my first D-max I was sold and never buy gas again. But honestly if I didn't have the Toy Hauler I would have no reason to own a diesel. If it were just for a daily driver I would want a smaller diesel engine in a 1500HD. Maybe one of these days GM will answer everyone's prayer and start offering diesels in the 1500 or even better a Suburban or Tahoe. I would definitely get one of those to haul the whole family around.

I always thought that after purchasing a diesel I'd never go back to gas, but nowadays if I had to buy a brand new HD truck, it'd be a gas truck without a doubt, unless I was absolutely needed the extra towing capacity.
