Same here, as sad as that is to say... According to my math, with a $4000 premium and added fuel costs, it would probably NEVER break even during the life of the motor...No more diesels for me
and wait, a gasoline fueled espar heater!!?? That was one of the lingering annoyances I had regarding selling my sprinter for a gas powered transit or promaster - the need for a separate diesel tank. GAS HEATER - DUH!The other headache with diesel is running Espar heaters...**** fuel gels at minus 30 and makes them unpredictable when you really need them...the gas versions work fine at that temperature.
Won't Transits be exempt from EPA ratings? Regardless, MPG can't be that great for any conventional vehicle that weighs up to 5500 pounds empty and has so much frontal area. The difference between gasoline and diesel MPG will depend in part on type of driving, and EPA can't know that for each of us anyway......cut..... It will be interesting to see the mpg ratings of the gas and diesel engines in the Transit so accurate operational cost differences can be calculated.
You want the 'b' series...like a B4 Airtronicand wait, a gasoline fueled espar heater!!?? That was one of the lingering annoyances I had regarding selling my sprinter for a gas powered transit or promaster - the need for a separate diesel tank. GAS HEATER - DUH!
I'm off to google!
Good way to put it.The ecoboost I believe is over 1800 $ more than the 3.7 and gets less MPG. How do you justify that? The ecoboost is turbo charged , making it more complicated. If you don't like a complicated diesel then why buy the more complicated ecoboost. I'm confused.
