    Isn't Colorado really just California version 1.5?

    I was in Ca recently. You will not re-coup the $ on the swap.

    Do the math.

    You're thinking of Washington. Gov Jay Inslee just sits and studies the Republik of Kalifornia for "his" next big idea......

    Doesn't make sense on a lot of different levels.
    Not going to save money on fuel either.
    Going to loose a LOT of money in depreciation though.
    SMH.

    I don't see how i'm not going to save money on fuel. Gas is cheaper and my Eco doesn't get very good mileage. However that really isn't the reason I want out of the Eco. Depreciation? Yeah, not much can be done about that other than buying used

    Be sure to post a picture

    Yeah you might of took a hit in depreciation but I’m sure you’ll be happier with the more reliable Hemi.

    Neither does the gas engine, in fact it gets worse gas mileage than the diesel.
    You may be spending slightly less per gallon but you'll not be getting as many miles per gallon either. Couple that with the depreciation hit (twice, assuming you bought the eco new) and it'll take you literally decades to recoup the difference.
    I could give a shit if you just want a new truck I'm just pointing out that the idea that you're going to be saving money on gas is ludicrous.
