On GM 2500 trucks:

Diesel engine/Allison trans is about $8000 option
Diesel oil change is 2-3 times more than gas oil change
DEF fluid required for most newer diesels
Cost of diesel fuel is .20-.30 more per gal. than reg gas
Closest diesel station to me is 10 miles away

I leave my house at 3:30 am 3/times a week and any diesel will wake the neighbors so no diesel for me.

GM should have proceeded with the 4.5 liter diesel for 1/2 tons and suburbans but they have bigger problems it seems. That company better wake up.
