no DEF for this guy. Hell, I don't even have a cat converter (musta fallen off, your honor!). There are a few drawbacks to having a real (read: Diesel) truck though:
1) Diesel gels at cold temp. The big unit gelled up on the last cold snap and had to get towed home.
2) Gas stations with 29 empty gas pumps are guaranteed to have cars getting gas at the only 2 pumps that also sell diesel.
There. That's pretty much the only drawbacks to a diesel.
One day Ryan, if our paths ever cross, I'll let you take a romp through the gears in the big unit. You will never wanna drive a gasser again.
