    I will echo Auctioneer's comment. If you are debating between a gas or diesel get the diesel. I understand fuel is like gold now a days, but if you are getting a F250 for it intended purpose go diesel.

    I have both and prefer the gas for many reasons unless I'm towing heavy or hilly.

    Agree with the diesel oriented. Mine's a 2001 model, still clicking without problems, beyond 100,000 miles, nothing but routine maintenance; originally bought for towing an RV and the western hills. 22MPG loaded with shoot gear, highway, but it is a 2WD since I don't do off road ever and snow or ice is handled with turning around. zoom zoom....breakemall
