A lot depends on how you drive. I was going to get a diesel when I
bought my Ram pickup, but then I looked more closely at how I would
use it. Diesels are really made to run all day.

My use generally consisted of one 60-mile round trip per week, plus
several short trips for the rest of the time; and in the summer I
hardly drive the truck at all. So a diesel didn't make sense, either
for the extra price (they are expensive) or for the wear-and-tear on
the engine.

If you're driving a lot, they're good. If it's just a go-for-
groceries short-hop vehicle, you're not doing the engine any favors.
