EPA 21/27 mpg for the Diesel ? Doesn't sound that great to me, our 1992 
3800 TranSport can do that (I get 24+ mpg at 70+ with air on down the 
Interstate, would be considerably better at the EPA test which never 
exceeds 60 & air is off.

TranSport has a current book values of $2k-$3k, can seat seven (our usual 
trip configuration is as a 2 seater) and tow is rated at 3,000 lbs. Has 
carried 1800 lbs of tile without exceeding any capacities.

Add in the fact that diesel costs about the same as 89 around here (about 
10 cents/gal more than 87) and I do not see any real savings. You just have 
to want a Jeep.
