Most miles will be either empty or pulling my 12' trailer with the RZR on it. I only tow the camper every couple of months. For the $9k less for the gas motor over the Cummins I can buy a lot of gas. Plus gas is $.50-.60 a gallon cheaper than diesel where I live and almost always is so the improved mileage from the diesel is probably negligible when you factor in the increased cost of #2 over gas.
