the excess diesel from the us goes to europe and the excess gas from europe comes here because we dont have enough refineries to make the gas we use. The low sulfer diesel did the same thing to diesels as the ethenal added to gas did to my gas cars about 1-2 mpg less but my ram 2500 with the 5.9 cummins gets around 18 mpg city before ultra low sulfer diesel it got 19.5-20 city Randy

360sam, you might be right. The absolute power difference between the 2.5 and 3.0 is not so much. Only 13 horsepower and 50 Nm torque. A friend of mine has a Mazda BT50 2.5 Diesel and it runs just fine.
But I also have to tow a caravan that weighs 1500 kg.

They have both a manual 5-speed.
This is the Limited version:

Well, we don't pay in dollars of course but in euro's. So for me it is only 27.000 euros for a 3.0 Diesel Double Cab and only 23.800 for a 2.5 Diesel Double Cab. The fact that it is so much in US Dollars, is because the US Dollar has become completely worthless...

from what i've seen the diesel engine option on pickups in the US adds a lot to the price, i'm not really surprised that the 3.0 diesel is worth so much more than the 3.0 gas
