Did a little math to verify this. The results surprised me......... but the cost savings isn’t there with current gas prices.
150k miles driven. Gas gets 16.2mpg. Diesel gets 24.30mpg. 87 octane costs $2.28/gal. Diesel costs $3.29/gal
Cost for diesel in fuel = $20308.64
Cost for gas in fuel = $21111.11
Over 150k miles you'll spend $561.88 more in gas than diesel. I really thought that would lean more towards the diesel.
mpg numbers pulled from 2014 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee using the site Fuelly.com
fuel prices pulled from gasbuddy.com for my area.
*EDIT*....updating for Jeep fuel numbers
