    Cummins and cheap dont really go together. Good luck on your search.

    Re: 1985 F-250

    yeah im not sure what "nothing deisel and cheap go together" means but oh well. with a cummins i'g from 8 mpg to 21 mpg and with biodiesel starting to pop up i'd be much better and cheaper. oil changes would cost less for me because right now i have a 7.5 i think the cummins is 5.9

    not to mention a diesel is the cheapest thing to make go fast. $300 dollar chip = 150hp and an easy 2-3 seconds faster down the track. and i plan on throwing on a big *** turbo from the start

    Not true, even with diesel at $4 dollars a gallon. The longevity and capabilties of a diesel powered truck still make it a better buy than a gas powered truck. I have had 3 diesel trucks all Powerstrokes and the 1st 2 have gotten over 300K miles out of them before I bought newer to replace. These were both in good running condition when they were sold. The 3rd has almost 130K on it and runs like new and it gets between 17-20 miles to the gallon.

    yep i figure with my truck weight i'd get like 21.

    maybe less because i want to get bigger injectors and tune the tranny more for straight aways and of course bigger turbo and chip. anyone wanna loan me 20k to get everything how i want it?
