Re: Hi from Sydney Australia

At Down Under, regular diesel (not bio) is about A$1.48/litre so in US terms that should be about A$5.52/gallon. That is about twice of what you folks pay there. That would explain rather small capacity diesel motors here compared to US. I must say the F350 is a FINE LOOKING TRUCK.

Same here. I have not been to the US but I do admire your big-boy trucks like the F350. Now that is a TRUCK. Fuel cost will probably push my wife and kids on to the street.

Re: Hi from Sydney Australia

Yes it is a fun truck and being 2.0L it won't burn a hole in my pocket. It is probably the smallest in size compared to other mainstream trucks like Toyota Hilux, Mitsu Triton, VW Amorak etc.

Hi from Sydney Australia

Big hello from Down There. Big fan of the stick. Bought a manual light truck or a ute as we call it here. Its a 6sp 2.0L common rail diesel and recently chipped to reduce turbo lag.
