It is too soon to judge the MPG with this diesel. Although most evidence points to it being quite the gains. My 2012 does about 13.5 mpg city and 19 - 20 hwy. 17 mpg hwy in the mountains.
Gas (87) is about $5.45 / gallon here. Diesel about the same.

It is important to compare apples to apples. My truck is a crew, 4X4 Laramie and if I can gain 5 - 8 miles per gallon with this diesel I'll be trading up.

If I had a regular cab 2wd short box with the V6 and 8spd trans, maybe not worth it.
