Here's another plus for having a diesel, based on personal experience. I had a diesel truck when we evacuated (from Houston) for Hurricane Rita. It took us 12 hours to drive what normally took 3 hours. Whenever we stopped for fuel, all the stations were out of gas, but they all had diesel. If you live anywhere near the ocean, it's definitely something to consider. Not to mention putting your left foot on the brake and your right on the gas and revving to around 3000 rpm's and then letting go of the brake never gets old. Diesels rock.
