I'm looking to purchase a new truck after the first of the year. Looking real hard at a F250/2500 series truck. Options include diesel engines and gas burners. Diesel runs about an extra $9K +/-. Going to use it to pull a boat, general running around the country and whatever else I want to use it for. At 59 years old this will probably be the last truck I'll ever buy because I run them till the wheels fall off. Any advantage of the diesel over the gas burner? I've had diesel work trucks but never in a personal truck. ETA - Post #50,000.
