If you tow 4000 miles per year.
4000 miles gas towing divided by 8 gals per mile = 500 gals of fuel.
4000 miles diesel towing divided by 11 gals per mile = 363 gals of fuel
So the diesel with the better millage save 137 gals of fuel over gas towing.
Diesel can go longer between oil changes.
More than pays for the difference in services cost between gas and diesel that are about 40% more than gas. And that is the rest of the story...
