Diesels are work engines, built and intended to pull heavy loads efficiantly. If he wants good economy out of a diesel, then tell him to buy a VW with a TDI. Those cars get around 40-50MPG. A GM truck is nothing more than a big wind break with a strong engine, not really a economical truck by any means.
