Smile Not much happening!

I am selling my 1999, 7.3 liter diesel and buying a 2013, 6.2 liter gasoline F350. I was looking for current info on the truck and engine.

I looked over the 11-up Gas Engines forum and it seems like its been a month or so since there was a post. I looks like the forum has a lot of pages in the past but little action recently.

Are the gas engines that good or has everything been hashed over already, in the past two years?

I think it's because the engines are good and reliable. If you're not towing a real heavy load, the gas engine is a good choice.

Thanks for the reply Jesse 1. I guess that this is also primarily a diesel engine site. I know that I have long found good info about my 7.3 liter diesel engine here.

As I get older and tow less I think that the gas engine will be a good choice for me now.

Utah66, you will enjoy driving the 6.2 runs smooth and quiet, but still has a bit of growl when stepped there's only been a few times that I wished I still had a diesel..but those are fading too, especially when I pull up to the gas pump to fill the 36 gal tank.

Thanks for the input bowhuntwi1. I just heard that my new truck will be built on Saturday December first. I don't know whether to be concerned that it will be built on overtime or pleased that it will be built soon. I used to hear horror stories about cars that were built on Mondays. Too many workers hungover or missing on Mondays was the story. I guess there are myths and stories about everything.
Anyway I am looking forward to getting the new truck.

I was concerned that my 2012 was built on a Friday, thinking perhaps folks in a hurry to get home, or weekend plans on their mind. Not to worry, 12kmiles on my new truck now and not one single problem. I would'nt give it a second thought. I think you'll be happy!

Good luck with your new SD! The 6.2L is solid...solid...solid. If ordering...and going to tow frequently...I'd recommend the 4.30 gears. Other than worries.
