V10 Gas or Diesel?

2005 Ford Excursion XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)
Review
We love our Excursion, even nick-named it "Haus" since this gentle giant has served us well. Pulls a horse trailer with ease and on those occasions when you need to rent "real" toys like a 21' boom lift or a backhoe, you better not show up in a Toyota, they'll laugh you out of the place. Go home son and bring back a real truck 3/4 ton or better you'll be hearing as you slink out of the parking lot. We have a real issue over all the hoopla about the Powerstroke diesel and all the negatives about the V-10 sucking up gas, which is definitely NOT the case, ours has always gotten 12-15 MPG city and gets better mileage loaded out than the Dodge Ram Pickup with a 318-V8, and no stinky $$ diesel fuel.
Favorite Features
We have lots of favorite features, mine is the high profile, sits up as high as a van, for easy view of what's out in front of you, big and roomy and can fit 8 "real adults" in comfort and your stuff. The rest of the family enjoys the great sounding 6 CD Player and the DVD player on long hauls.
Suggested Improvements
A light for the ashtray would be nice or is Ford trying to tell us something ...hmmmmm for $40,000. We want a light other than our Zippos!
