    Now who in the world could be responsible for this?

    Is incompetence so pervasive in this administration that they can't even hire someone qualified to pump gas?

    It sure looks that way!

    I guess my question is why doesn't an 8T limo run on diesel?

    While I agree it would make more sense, I think I can tell you why,...
    Noise.
    Vibration.
    Smoke.

    Of course if it was me, I'd want a Banks modified Cummins in that puppy!

    I'd be surprised if it didn't have a diesel. The later Kodiak/Topkicks usually had the 6.6L Duramax. I don't think a gas engine would pull that hulk around. They could also be had with the 8.1L Vortec gas engine but a diesel would have a lot more torque. Of course those were the stock engines, who knows what they stuffed in it.

    8 Tons wow. Even with the 8.1L Vortec you wouldn't run away and hide from much. But at 8 tons I guess you don't need to.

    He was qualified to pump gas, but not diesel!

    Exactly what I've got in our motorhome
    Cummins ISC was 350 hp and 1050 ft lbs now 435 hp and 1200 ft lbs, but the max figures don't show the whole story! The power band is much wider, old peak was 1050 at 1400 and then down. Now it's 1200 ft lbs from 1400 to past 1700 rpm and never gets down to 1050 till 2100 rpm.
