I have had several different trucks mostly diesel and have a new Ford diesel.The 7.3 turbo diesel was an excellent motor probably better with manual trans.The 6.0 was good till 100,000 mile warranty ran out then head gasket problems again manual trans.I have had Duramax Allison setup with 0 problems.I had some cummings with manual no problems w/good mileage.The 2011 Ford has plenty of power but only has a 21 gal. tank plus urea and gets the worst mileage of any truck I have had 7MPG pulling 32ft trailer w/tractor.

Not wanting to high jack this topic. Does anyone know how much pollution is put out per mile on an older truck that is getting 16 miles per gallon of diesel and then how much is put out per mile on a new 7 mile per gallon on urea truck? Just wanting to know if per miles driven we are gaining anything.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The EPA or whoever can phrase it any way they want to, and they do choose their words carefully and make sure to give us ONLY the information that proves what THEY want to prove, but in the REAL world, any truck that can go 16 miles on a gallon of fuel has GOT to be emmiting far less pollution than the 7 mile per gallon urea truck.

No it doesn't. It emits less CO2 but the other stuff is a different story. For example, in gas, a new ULEV that gets 35 mpg might put out what, a few ppm of NOx vs an old 80's civic or something that got 50 mpg, but puts out thousands of ppm of NOx. Its a similar story in diesels.
