My 2011 F250 6.7 diesel, 400 HP with 800 lbs-ft. torque is real quiet, sound almost like a gas engine. Does not stink or smoke. Gets 20 MPG, 11.5 MPG towing a 11K lb toy hauler trailer. Gets about one gallon of DEF fluid ever 1000 miles or so, a 2.5 gallon jug of DEF fluid cost about $12 at Walmart.

DEF is expensive when bought in stores. I guess I'm lucky that the local truck stop by me pumped it for about $2.xx gallon. Don't need it anymore since I got rid of my Ford. I have a Cummins now pre-DEF.

I have seen this once and it took 5 mins before I stopped laughing so hard that I could wipe the tears back enough to drive
can't say I haven't done it once or twice myself but the last time I saw all 5 kids jumped out waving there hands coughing!!!!

I have never nor would I ever build mine for show or racing simply because it was purchased as my tv only. I have mod'd it only for lower egts, better mpg's , a little more efficient tow power but most of all a longer life! mine is a 6 speed man so If I shift to soon and stand on it I can spray for bugs with the rest of them but I pre-fer not to pour fuel out the pipe! lol this is my third diesel ( ford 7.3's) but at one time years ago I did have a gasser but once I towed with a diesel, I wouldn't go back. since I grew up on a ranch with mostly diesel tractors these trucks don't smell at all to me but I could see how some could say that.

I have only towed the condo-on-wheels from the dealer to our seasonal site. The only mods on the truck was the helwig heavy tow sway bar and the Air Lift 5000 air bags and the Super Glide. The 75 mi. tow was easy. Pulled up the hills with no problem. Towed better than the 8,000# TT we had.
