Yea, you have to factor it based on the number of miles that you will travel, and the change in mileage. If you are going from 16-17 MPG to somewhere near 30, I would assume that the upcharge for diesel would pay itself off pretty quick, assuming you are driving the thing often. I assume that this one will still be a more reliable block than a gas burner still, even with all the new-fangled tech involved, so you could factor anticipated maintenance into the equasion as well.
