    I agree, that's where I stopped. I would be more apt to open a random PDF file.

Anyway, i came up with the attached spreadsheet that calculates the cost of owning an ecodiesel vs other trucks. Feel free to check my math and do what you all want with it. The results are quite revealing. Yellow highlighted squares can be changed to whatever you like.

    I'm an analyst and tend to over analyze everything... so I have a sheet that does the same thing, and include the F150 options, the GM 5.3, and my current Tahoe for comparison.

    I have mine done on a yearly basis, not over the life like you have and have pretty similar results when I use the same estimated MPG. I think you're skewing your results using 16 MPG and 25 MPG when the EPA estimates are 19 and 22 respectively.,, Where did you get those number?

    I did my analysis using the EPA window sticker numbers to keep everything equal across all variations as those numbers are derived similarly and take out the variability of user input and "field" number that take on A LOT of data variability and dirty data

    I traded a 07 GMC Canyon 4 cyl 5 speed to get my 17 ED Laramie. My last calculation showed that the Canyon would have saved me two cents over 350 miles of driving. So, at about 21k miles on the ED, I could have saved $1.20 over the last 15 months. Of course that doesn't take into account the failing ABS system that needed replacing to get the Canyon to pass the upcoming state inspection.
