Got my 2013 F-250 6.2 Lariet for $41250. That buys a lot of gas and my garage doesn't reek of diesel. Not worth the extra hassle.

Reek of diesel? Pretty obvious that you didn't even crank a new diesel during your search. Case closed.

Took one home for the weekend. Brought it back and got the gasser. 6.7 is a great puller but it's overkill.

Go with the diesel. Its pretty stupid to by a 250 and up truck with an engine that comes in the f150. If you want a real truck get the diesel

I warm my truck up in my detached garage for 10mins and theres no smell of diesel at all, I also cool the turbo idling in the garage, no smell, unlike my 6.2 gasser where I'd walk in and instantly get high, not as bad as my quad tho haha

To OP, depends really on how much your going to be towing, diesel for sure with lots, 6.2 for not so much, mileage is great with the diesel but offset by the price of diesel and 12.4L of oil changes, I had a 6.2 f150, great engine, loved towing but it liked gas, had it tuned for 91 octane, so the price of diesel to premium isnt much of a diff, can get diesel cheaper if I shop around. In reality anything is good, as long as its a Ford.

as a super duty owner with the gas pod diesel is really the only way to go in these trucks I test drove the 6.2 little more power than my 5.4 but still a pig on gas I decided to go back to the f150 with the ecoboost for now I plan on a 25 foot travel trailer Intel I can afford the diesel I want. I also owe allot on my current truck wich made getting into the f350 diesel harder.
