    I did not get rid of the cummins for the MPG ,it got 18 average and 20.5 on highway. I was getting tired of paying too much for diesel though and I did not know how long the 48RE was going to last.

    I loved the cummins it had alot of power. I have the 5.3 in the chevy I like it. I do not think I will ever go back to a diesel since they started to make them smog proof.
