    I spent 13k on the diesel ATV. They wanted to be rid of it so I got a 3k discount.

    I am sure you know this...

    Diesels are hard to start when it is seriously cold... and the fuel needs treatment for moisture in cold weather.

    Might want to read up on procedures...

    From a guy that owned diesel trucks.

    GA's basic rules of home heating and AC upgrades:
    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!

    I drove diesels for a few decades...
    Switched to gasoline a few years after the turn of the century...

    Just got tired of the extra hassles of diesels...

    And after putting the calculator to it (purchase price, more oil changes that use more oil, fuel additives, fuel filters, glow plug failures, injector failures, etc)... I decided the only thing I was getting from diesels was the 'cool' factor.

    Note that the newer OBD2 computer driven engines had gone through their 'R&D in the field' (consumers)... by then... the bugs were out of the OBD2 system.

    My current express 3500 extended... is quiet, fast, gets good mileage, and costs less to operate than the equivalent diesel version of the Express 3500 extended.
    Go figure...
