My husband's latest great idea is to convert our 2001 Ford F-150 truck from gas to diesel. I would very much like to know if this is worth the time and money to do. The truck currently has more than 100,000 miles and is driven maybe a few times a month, but he is convinced that this is a good idea. I can only imagine what it would cost to pay a mechanic to do the work. Can you help by providing me with some straightforward and unbiased advice? I'm counting on you to help burst the bubble. — Laura
