Check this out. Ram 1500 first modern half-ton pickup with diesel Do you think it will actually happen this time? I'm happy if it comes but the mileage will have to real real good before I change back to diesel.

Depends on what you do with the truck if ya would need the diesel or the hemi. I don't need it for what I do and it still has pep in its step. It burns me to see all these people driving diesel s that don't need them. oh well there money I guess.

Here in the PI most light vehicles SUV/Van have diesel engines. Diesel fuel is cheaper than gas here. And probably should be cheaper in the states also if they didn't manipulate the prices.

Yeah... Its nothing but politics around here... Hell my boss complains about gas prices now because a gallon of gas is cheaper than a gallon of milk.... Greedy son of a biscuit eater.

Wow, a gallon of milk here is $3.25, gas is $3.50. Diesel is $4. I suspect it will take a lot of miles just to break even with that (or any) diesel. Fuel cost/mile is minimally lower. If you factor in the increased maintenance and purchase cost, a diesel is seldom worth it (unless there's a true need).

Wow. Damn prices need to go back down... It just boils down to greedy people. Gas around my area is 3.59 and diesel is 4.23... And the sad part is that's the cheapest... I went up to Springfield Illinois on Saturday and its 3.89 for gas up there.
