Why EcoDiesel, Why Now?

This is a question for you. I'm curious why you want the Ecodiesel and why you want it now.

Is it because you like owning and operating a pickup truck but fuel costs were beginning to strangle you?

Is it because you prefer diesel but dont want the fuel munching and wallet annihilating HD's?

Is it for work? Diesel drops off less in efficiency than petrol when doing work.

Is it brand based?

Anything missed? I'm just wondering what circumstances brought us all together...

Doing all the "what-if's" can drive one crazy. When we test drove the 1500 hemi-testing ride, etc., wife said, "Why not this one? Why do you want the diesel?" So those "what-if's" come back and after looking at the Hemi's 17mph--heck, I might as well jump to a 2500 Cummins. They get about the same or better fuel economy. Only problem---I don't need that much truck anymore. But then again...(dang it...doing it again!)
