2012 F350

Did everyone see the F350 Diesel was the only American made vehicle that was in the top 10 list of diesel vehicles that save money over 5 years compared to their gasoline counterparts?

Re: 2012 F350

If so, I'm amazed, considering it has the dpf, complex EGR, and unreliable urea injection.

Re: 2012 F350

they factor in fuel savings and maintenance costs..it was only up 1100 or so but interesting seeing an F350 in a category full of Mercedes and BMW..definately the redheaded stepchild of the group

Re: 2012 F350

A local 2012 F-450 owner told me that he had to add a bottle of the urea-stuff every other tankful and the urea-stuff costs$36 a bottle.

Is that true?
