I have both the diesle and the big gas motor and i still think the gas is the better value for me. I look at the upfront cost of the diesle and then the cost of diesle compared to gas . I do think the diesle has more power for towing. I normly dont keep my trucks for more than 4 years however with the new deisle's and the emmisions I may hold on to mine for a while. But who know's what the cost of fule will be in the future. GM quit making the big gas motor and it would not surprise me to see ford do the same.
