Default right frame of mind
I currently have a 2015 1500 hemi. I have about a 60 mile round trip commute for work. It is all highway, but a lot of stop and go. The hemi is getting about 16 mpg's right now. My main concern is the long commute. I am putting about 30,000 miles a year on the truck. I can't help but think that a 3/4 ton diesel would be better in the long run due to the amount of miles that I will put on the truck. After 5 years, the 1500 will be worthless and the 2500 will just be "broken in". Is my thinking wrong? Is there something else that I am not thinking about? Just wanting to get the thoughts of different owners with the higher miles on their trucks. Thank you
