Wait until you experience the engine brake on some of the mountain passes that you encounter. Between that and the Manual 6-speed function, it's the cats azz. And your right too, about the mpg, just did a 2800mile trip to Fla down through NC and Va. and averaged 10mpg pulling a 40' 5ver....can't complain too much

Right on. Towing capacity in the mountains is where you see the big difference between gas and diesel. Also right on about engine breaking. Don't have to ride brakes in the mountains.
