I think it is excellent, you are considering all the weight rather than the dry weight. The argument gas versus diesel has gone on forever and you can find those arguments all across the Internet. I am normally a gas person, but that is some impressive weight. I will tell you that on a long steep grade when my 6.2 is in second or third gear it is screaming. Not worrisome, but it sure is irritating. If you were hauling less weight, I would vote gas all the way, but in a heavily loaded dually, diesel gets my vote. 🙂
