:Well they will pry have to have a dpf (maybe more for the 2010 emission jump) so I would say itll be at least (just for the dpf) 1000 more then the gas option, thats jsut for the dpf.

If the average 1/2 ton gasser gets ~12 MPG around town/~18 MPG highway , that would mean the diesel would get ~15 in town/ ~23 highway.
1/2 ton is probably 14 around town and the 18 highway sounds right. but I would hope for for better than 15-23 out of the diesel. Like I said I would HOPE. Still beats the gasser thou.

VERY few, I'd say. Like less than 1,000, if I had to guess.

it will be more then $1k more because it will also have the SCR and urea injection. As of right now the numbers that they are shooting for...HP and torque are very impressive for a small block diesel:Thumbup:
