Yeah, tallying the numbers convinced me to not get diesel; buying and operating the 3.7 gas engine is cheaper over 500,000 miles. The ecoboost over 350,000 miles. Those are the estimated break even points given the cost of the engine option, fuel cost savings, and maintenance costs. And there are some variables that are hard to account for; such as the price fluctuation of diesel. Sometimes lower than regular, sometimes higher than super.
