The 7.3 is a $1700 option and for an additional $8800 you can have the Powerstroke. Even though the gasser is probably all most of us would ever need I think it would be very difficult to go from diesel to gas.

Not familiar with a dually, how does the 5400 lb payload compare? The 7.3 sounds pretty good at the tailpipe.


The payload is typical for a newer dually; my 2013 Ram is 5,397 lbs.

I think it would be much easier after dealing with a CP4 failure not covered by warranty.... [emoticon]

Could be wrong but I think the 2020 powerstroke ditched the CP4

Just got rid of my 2013 Duramax for that reason, it started acting funny.

That could be. So maybe 1 in a thousand disesel owners want to switch to gas on account of experiencing a failed pump ... then there are another 5 per hundred that are paranoid.


I believe the 2020 Powerstroke still uses the Bosh CP4.2 but it has been updated with a longer stroke.

You are correct, and it has a much higher max pressure.

The new 7.3 gas might work great for us but one of the main reasons I stick with a diesel is ease of fueling while on the road with our fifth wheel. There a lots of truck stops which makes for easy in, easy out. I would imagine there are a number of stations that can handle bigger rigs needing gas but most are not designed with that in mind, at least in my experience.
