Yup - very hard to justify the diesel engine with trucks today. Unless you tow a ton (like already mentioned) or you just WANT a diesel. Nothing wrong with that....

Diesels are like potato chips you JUST can't have one... That torque is addictive...

I really wanted one. Just couldn't justify the cost to run it.

Yeah, if I didn't drive a pretty hefty number of miles a year, and tow a fair bit, it would be difficult to justify. Of course, when the rig is paid for... you can spend a lot in fuel and still come out on the plus side of things...
