All right, I know about how the motors work but the real question is gas or diesel. Im going to be moving to barstow california for my next duty station and im wanting to get a truck but I dont know if i should get a gas or diesel truck. In all honesty i want good MPG and something that has power but isnt guna kill me to fix if something breaks. The truck is guna be driven alot from california to arizona maybe once every 3-4 months and the rest of the time in cali. all it will be hauling is a dirtbike tools and other stuff. Can you guys give me some answers??
