The only thing about the gas model is the GCWR is 6k lighter than the same truck in a diesel. So your 12k trailer puts you over GCWR by about 4k.
This is starting to be an issue with all the states DOT dept. they have started check what the GCWR is of the truck pulling the load.

Really? Every spec I have ever seen on most every brand shows the same GVWR and GCWR. Which means the gas truck can haul more! because it weighs less.
You can't compare a 1/2 ton gasser to a dually diesel.
I have a diesel dually. It replaced a 454 dually. There is only a couple of MPG difference between a modern diesel and a good running big block. Because of the expense and emissions, my next dually will be a gasser.
