RE: [DMCForum] Gas alternatives, then? (Martin)



In my case it would have been more expensive to operate with the higher cost
of diesel.  I was wrong on the $10k difference though, it was more around
$7k higher for the diesel engine.

My intention was to run biodiesel in the truck but I travel too much and
would have to use regular diesel while out of town.  The insurance for the
diesel truck was also higher, as was the maintenance cost.  The MPG of the
diesel was very close, if not exact, to what I am getting now burning
gasoline.

Would it have?  I always thought Diesel trucks got
more MPG than their gasoline equivalents.  Even if the
cost of diesel fuel is a bit higher, it should be less
money per mile.  no?
