Q: think enron then it makes sense. inventor. i live at the place where they make gasoline then ship it out of the area then ship it back in which increases the costs. sounds totally moronic to me @twister.austin.rr.com here is texas the cost of diesel fuel now cost more that the 93 octane gasoline i dont know where in texas you are but it must not be around houston where diesel is running .10 to .15 per gallon cheaper than unleaded regular. ur = 1.389 to 1.489 diesel = 1.289 to 1.369 .

in a post i made regarding my deciding to go with 4.7l or hemi 2003 ram i received several emails saying to never buy a new model/generation engine. assuming you would inn effect be a guinea pig for all the problems the new engine will need twekaed. is this a myth i would suspect it makes some sense logically. i bought the hemi without considering this fact. love it...... so far ;^ is there anyone who has put a lot of miles on their hemi yet todd let me tell you about the dodge hemi. i work for a financial company looking at investing into a company that provides assembly line automation. i ended up hooking up with some people in the auto industry. i actually went to the testing facilities where they were working with the new 5.7 hemi. they were putting it through hell! i mean non stop at 4000 rpm for weeks onend. they would then stop it cool it in this freezer and then bring it out again. this was not a prototype. this was the final version and not tweaked in any way. i think they put what would be close to 250000 miles on the engine. it was amazing! the only reason i didnt buy a dodge with a hemi was because the dealer was an ass and i still have issues with dodge trannies believe it or not i am a toyota man for now but i am shopping for a dodge 2500 with a hemi. anyway do not worry about this engine. it was built very well. if anything make sure you have yourself covered on the tranny. the hemi is built like a tank. do not regret it. .

here in the phila. area 87 is $1.39 a gallon diesel at $1.89 a gallon. the truckers here have been screeming. just gosh awfull greed and for a throwaway product. do you know what the refiners would do with diesel and gasoline if we didnt buy it dump in the woods just like they did in the late 1800s. now we drive 4 wheel recycle machines with fancy catalitic filters and take care of the mess. and if we get too much mileage reformulate for worse mileage. the yugo use to get 55 miles to the gallon now only 20. same car just different fuel. inventor. .
