It says a lot that Canada's ambulance services have switched to gas... their bean counters can't all be wrong.
For sure, ha.Let's not forget the fun factor. It's subjective as well but I love having the on demand torque and the boost delivery of a TD.
There is not much to say after reading all the great info, the insight here is great. Is it going to be a Camper? That relationship is more intimate than most vehicles, you might care what your partner smells like when just hanging around the campsite. I drive forest roads and sneak up on wildlife sometimes which it can make a trip memorable, a heavy 7.3 does not sneak up on much........Hi All.
There's probably a better place to ask this, but I really only visit this area of the forum and I'd like to hear the thoughts on diesel vs. gas motors.
I'm intending to make the transition to a full size Truck or Van and have been swaying towards diesel for the seemingly better gas mileage and alleged longevity.
I say alleged longevity, because the more I ask, the more I question the statement. When I hear "I've got 250K" it's usually followed by I replaced the injectors at 100k for 3k. Or I had the engine bulletproofed for $6k. Or a new transmission.
I suppose any vehicle will go 300k if you keep throwing money at it. I'm curious if these kinds of things are just blown out of proportion or the norm.
I'm one of those "to each their own" guys and not trying to stir the pot. But I'm coming from a long line of mostly imports where I've seen 150-250k of fairly trouble free service. Not perfect, but not 5k "maintenance" bills either.
Trying to get an idea of what I'm in for.
