Re: Thoughts on 6.2 GM diesels wanted

Great mileage but I only got up to 45 MPH with ours on the interstate pulling 500 gallons of Roundup. Absolutely gutless. uses oil too. have to carry oil with us and add sometimes before we leave town. great mileage.

Try to get a 599 block, those were the last ones made, and they're beefed up so you can bore it out to a 6.5 if you wanted to.

Great motor, has it's weak spots (power), but it was an engine made for fuel economy, as an alternative to a 350 gasser. Comparing it to a 7.3L Ford/Navistar or 5.9 Cummins is like comparing apples to oranges, so watch for anyone you talk to who goes banging on it.
