Default Re: Gas and diesel pricing

Moot point for me. I chose a Sprinter for its design not engine and I have never and will continue to never worry about the comparative costs. Since there was no choice I got diesel by default. My criticism of diesel are dirty pump handles and some inconveniences of pump locations. Here is the good news for diesel.

If your all-electric car gets its power from coal, new study says it is dirtier than gasoline

The article goes on to state:

Hybrids and diesel engines are cleaner than gas, causing fewer air pollution deaths and spewing less heat-trapping gas.

Sprinters were available with gasoline engines (3.5L V-6) when imported by Dodge. Wish they would again offer gas engine as an option.

I don't even recall that. I know no Class B converter offered one. Are you sure it just wasn't talk, speculation and supposition because Mercedes Benz does make gasoline engines and there was a lot of hope with the new model they would start? They were always Mercedes Benz Sprinters. Dodge was owned by Daimler until 2010 and just badged them with the Dodge name as they did with the Freightliner name for the dealers. Other than badge and front grill they were all identical in every way.

i was going to deal with sportsmobile at the time. they did offer the gasoline sprinter 2007 model year. you got a 2000 dollar credit if you got the gasoline. i agree no other manufacturer built a gas one
