So at 2% of fuel consumption, most big trucks get 6-8mpg that means in an average day for a long haul guy he will burn through 100ish gallons of fuel and 2 gallons of piss. Adding an extra $10/day operating cost to an industry with paper thin profit margins as it is seems like a horrible idea. Hopefully there is enough of a fuel economy improvement to offset the cost. An economy trying to rebound doesn't need any more truckers shutting down.

I'm not opposed to doing what we have to do to save the planet but government regulations mandating that it becomes more expensive to do a job is not ok in my book.

I have no hard numbers or paperwork to prove it but I`m confident the systems reduce costs overall, it may be small, but i know the new ford 6.7l superdutys up here are capable of
22mpgI, compare that the 6.4l of before and thats double the economy in most cases. My superduty can`t break 10mpgI EVER.

I have to say; the fuel economy increases have offset the cost of the urea.

I stand by what I said.

The worst part about this is the extra cost of the engine package at time of new truck purchase.

That is the hardest pill to swallow, not all of the "sky is falling" propaganda about the urea.

Yet another GOOD reason to get more diesels off of the road!

YAY!

I hope the technology of modern day diesels discourages buyers and diesels die die die!

I wish I still made a car like my the 1980 diesel Cadillac I had...
30MPG and all the comforts of home... cruising down the highway. :thumbs:

Don't be hate-in'! :nono:

How did all the good you buy get to you? By a diesel powered boat, train, and/or truck. Diesels aren't going anywhere. And if gas prices go sky high, we'll become like Europe and all drive diesels.


I don't like the idea of adding more crap to a vehicle to go wrong by any means. If I ever do own a diesel, it will be in a GMT-800. I'm not against protecting the environment, but I just don't like having to worry about more systems, gadgets, and do-dads.

Jim, was that a 350 diesel by any chance?

A buddy bought a station wagon with one in it. He hasn't tried starting it yet, but it will be attempted this spring.

I'll never own a stinky noisy POS diesel. I'll ride a motorcycle or walk first. I can't even stand the smell of the fuel.

Ok. That's different. I thought you wanted them totally gone.

So your feelings towards diesels mirror your desire to lower Fred v2. :D :lol:

Pretty much. I'll leave the diesels and the .5 mph over speed bumps to others.

Working diesels I am OK with. My dumbass neighbor who has never hauled anything, been off road, and lives by himself buying a Ford Super Duty Crew Cab 4x4 King Ranch Diesel is purely idiotic.

Just my .02
