Hemi Ram Maintanance- Play Off's

Well at least us gassers don't need to find urine for the DEF tanks, and change those messy fuel/water filters! All that work for 100% of the available torque below 1500 rpm and Gobb's of it on demand. Not to mention better fuel economy while towing. Silly fools you oil burners are.

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.

Just goes to show oil burner guys can change just about any thread that has even a hint of a question about a gasser into something about stupid diesels.

FWIW I have been in many oil burners (including semi tractors)and still will never own one. My John Deere however is a diesel.

Tim- I thought about that after I wrote the post. A while back the post dispatch had a very good article and addressed a lot of things that don't get noticed. It's a shame it had to go down the way it all went. I hope you landed in a good spot.

I landed on my feet, but I might be headed to that big building with the checkerboard on the front if things work out. SSSssshhh
