B&D, I have to agree with your logic! I run a Chev 3500 SRW 4x4 with 8.1 gas and Allison because I only put about 8000 MPY on it! Prolly 90% of that is running around empty at 10.5 MPG. Yes, it would be great to have a li'l better mileage, but I can't justify the additional cost of the diesel, or a second vehicle with great fuel mileage, but the additional cost of ownership, maintenance, insurance, etc. just for 7500 miles of fuel savings.

JMHO, Dave

Interesting. My truck is a dually 3500 with the 8.1 and 6 speed manual. It is 10 years old with only 60,000 miles. MPG is comparable to yours. Seems rathe silly to have a rig like that for just two or three short trips into town per month, but occasionally the truck has a job to do that simply could not be handled by anything that gets 30+ mpg.
