Re:Cost

If it's a daily driver with light towing the gasser is going to last as long as the diesel. If you are towing heavy then that's a different deal. You buy the diesel because it's cool...

Re: Tires, which ones

Tell me about Coopers? Why are they so good? If you want Michelins that have tough side walls get a set of XPS tractions, all steel recappable tires, weigh a ton.

Re:close to running out of oil ??????????
