$2.86/gal for #2 and  $2.89/gal for unleaded. Factor in the commuting mileage and gas is still cheaper. Truck would be ~0.15/mile and commuter would be approx ~0.10/mile based on average daily driving mileage. 

 

If gas stays the same then #2 would have to drop to $1.88/gal to make it cost the same per mile. That doesn't account for the higher insurance for higher average annual mileage, more expensive tires, more expensive maintenance per mile, etc... 

 

It's really hard to make the truck cheaper to drive than the commuter.

But I think I made it work going from gas to diesel in my commuter cars!

 

I have a '01 VW Jetta TDI that regularly gets 50+ in combined daily driving.

 

I also have a '12 VW Passat TDI (clean diesel) that I regularly get 42 mpg in combined daily driving.  This car replaced an '09 Toyota Camry that regularly got 31 mpg in combined daily driving.

 

All the mpg numbers (gas and diesel) go higher if you consider only trip results but the overall results remain the same.

AH64ID at those prices I would have to say your right. For me though with the wider gap I can justify the diesel usage.

Your big benefit for the diesel is the mileage the '96 gets. Likewise it takes gas being quite a bit higher to make it cheaper to drive the gas. 

 

Gas pickups just plain burn a lot of fuel. 

 

This current tank on my pickup is pretty good thou and probably the best of the year. I am at 1/2 tank and 370 miles, which is something I haven't seen in years..... mainly due to having a commuter and rarely driving the truck for a 1/2 or full tank without a trailer or pair of ATV's in the bed.

I rarely pay attention anymore, just pump and pay. but did take a gander today, diesel 2.69  / 87 unleaded 2.79 / 91 premium 3.29

 

Enjoy it while you can, once winter heating oil demand jumps as well as harvest time prices will jump back up real quick again.
