The 7.3L is pretty reliable. But If your aren't gonna tow much I'd look into a F-250 or 350 with the V-10, it's got plenty of power to tow. Only reason why I don't recommend a diesel is because they require constant upkeep. and not driven alot could cause issue's.
Diesel's like to be driven run hard etc. it wouldn't be practical for a diesel to sit until you want to drive it again.
MPG isn't really anything to sneeze at, it get's nothing more then a regular v8 would some pay sware by it. but personally there isn't much difference in gas miledge between a gas and diesel. maybe 1-2 MPG more. nothing big like mentioned before.
Real Trucks Burn Diesel!
