    I'd expect you'd have enjoyed the 3.0L D4D a lot more.

    I heard following whipper's ban he has sequestered himself away working diligently on a 50 state legal replacement diesel for Tacomas.

    I'm sure it woukd be better to drive but would also get worse fuel economy. For some reason toyota diesels arent as fuel efficient as I would expect

    Modern diesels have come a long way in terms of power and fuel efficiency in the same sentence, however you're still losing a lot of energy to heat and it's still an ICE. You can only expect so much.

    Maybe some of these 3.0 d4d owners would kindly tell us what kind of mileage they're getting.

    The 1kd-ftv makes about the same torque but sooner and 60 less HP than the 1gr-fe but with the diesel and being a 3.0L I'd expect you get better MPG while having more useable torque (sooner 1800 vs 4000-5000 - shit mileage). And I'm sure the Hilux owners have figured out how to boost those numbers easily while maintaining similar fuel mileage.

    Kind of...

    Some of the more stock ones appear to be getting around 26...

    Kind of all over the map really I guess.

    Bottom line, more useable torque while achieving those numbers.

    I'd love a diesel option. But I won't be selling my truck unless it turns into a lemon. I intend on driving her until the floorboards are see through

    over here in belgium 80% is driving diesel .
    it only becomes more fuel effective when u drive more then 20.000 miles a year.
    a diesel car costs more to perchase and also to maintanance.
    a gasoline engine is less complicated to fix.
    diesel fumes and dust are so bad that the governement here is now promoting little gasolineengines.
    the only benefit i see for a diesel is the bigger torck.
    (this is just a personal point of vieuw)
