The biggest difference you'll see is the power band. You don't have to get on it hard to get the load moving.

Thanks for posting.... I had a little wind so I think I will get about 7 mpg loaded. I did lend my truck to someone who towed a 28ft loaded and he averaged 7mpg in my truck....

I dont haul a ton.... I go to my local track (20 min trip) and maybe do a few long hauls (Anything over 200 miles) a handful of times a year. Just wasn't sure if a diesel was worth looking into....
