v10 vs diesel

Im not so sure i agree with all of the above.
First the newer 7.3 direct injected motors get much better gas milage than the older direct injected or 6.9 motors.
Ive been around quite a few of these and to rebuild a one inside of that low of milage means the person just plain did not take care of the truck.
Personally I own the diesel motor. LOVE IT and that was the easy choice the hard one was if I wanted a extended cab or crew cab.
If your towing a heavy load hands down diesel is the way to go if not consider gas but even If I were not towing Id own the PSD just for the durability of the motor and with amsoil and some add on filters I dont even have to change my oil that often!

v10 vs diesel

Go Powerstroke for milage,durability,sounds better that the v10 that sounds like a sick 6 cylinder, Just change the oil and keep on going ..I get 17 in my 250HD 4x4 powerstroke and I hear people all the time saying they re getting 6.5 to 11 in a gas V10. V10 is cheaper to purchase new and there is a reason. drive both

v10 vs diesel

Let me put it in a simple format. People who drive trucks for a living prefer the diesel. Gas does not have the durablilty of a diesel. Lower maint cost and more reliabilty. The other factor in our business is that our trucks many times will idel for long periods in extreme hot temps, diesels we dont have to worry about overheating at idel, were as gas we can not let them idle for long periods.

Been doing this for many years now and have seen the gas vs diesel a lot. You wont find to many tow trucks that are gas. That will tell you a lot.

v-10 vs PSD

I'm currently looking for a Ford F-250 or 350 crew cab. I have read several post regarding V-10 vs PSD. The problem that I'm having trouble is which to buy? I want to find one 1999-2002, because that is my price range. My needs are; I go wood cutting about three times a year and then the truck would be used for projects around the house. I'd rather have to much truck now, because who know what I might need the truck for in the future. Any advice if I should buy a v-10 or the PSD would be helpful?
Thanks

Here is a couple pages to read about this. I don't think you will get much from this forum, being it is a diesel forum.

Hey brandonward! Welcome to FTE! I looked in your profile info and it shows your in Idaho, correct? This is a really old thread, but opinions probably won't have changed much. I won't debate the engine preferences. Each person likes what they like. I like diesels so I found one. It will be cheaper to purchase a v10 from what I have seen around my parts. I don't think you will be unhappy with whatever choice. Good luck!

Rick , my best friend is a die hard chevy gas guy, and he hates diesels. He tries and tries to convince me why gassers are better.
But when I ask him to prove the facts, all he can come up with is "diesels stink and they're loud".....
Thats the reason I have that sticker on my rear window...

Woo hoo, over 10 years old! I do believe this is the oldest thread I've ever seen brought back to the top!



All kidding aside, check out that link Rick posted for you. Just remember, there is a lot of BS slinging going on in that thread too!
