    From what I've been told by an owner, very powerful- you'll be passing 80 before you know it, but you will be stopping at every gas station along the way. I'd take that over a v8 since the power/torque is there with the Diesel and the MPG is not much different in reality from the 360 in the 2500. Keep in mind the 2500 is a much heavier truck than the 1500- it will use more fuel right off the bat from that alone.

    Have plowed with one for the past 2 years. Great power but very thirsty on fuel. I can sometimes watch the gas needle go down and thats on a 35 gallon tank!

    Kind of hard to find used parts for should you ever need them. Poor fuel mileage but the power makes it half way justifiable. Mileage isnt any worse than a BBC of BBF. I would buy one for the right price Thumbs Up.
