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.

+1 Fully agree.
