Never Underestimate The Power Of A Pissed Off Woma
Ok, I have a question. This is something I don't understand. Why does everyone want diesel vehicles instead of regular gas? Deisel is way higher than regular unleaded.
The quality has come and gone over the years.... the old 6.2 liter Chevy V8's were reliable enough, just gutless dogs. No power. the 6.5's were better, but the newer DuraMax engines are world-class. Parts (including filters) are VERY expensive, though. Buy cheap filters and you ruin it.Thanks, Plowgirl. Didn't know it, but I needed this info, too. DH ALWAYS talks about a diesel, and I just didn't get it. He never explained it quite like this. Ok, so I'm sold - now we need one, too! Who knew? :dunno:
Yep. We have one of each. :2thumb:7.3 fords er great, that international engine is well built, Cummins be a excellent choice.
We have a 1990 7.3 in our school bus,it starts right up.Not much MPG though,about 250 per 35 gal.tank.But it a shorty so its huge and strong,no more beng pushed around on the highway like our sticks and staples.7.3 fords er great, that international engine is well built, stay away from the newer fords with them variable vane turbo's, everbody round here with one them got nothin but headache.
Cummins be a excellent choice.
You sound like my hubby! Wonder if "she'd" come between us - would I be jealous of a diesel?Diesels are a very emotional thing with a lot of guys lol--you get addicted to the smell and to me that engine rummble is like a lullaby --makes me feel that all is well lol.
