Default Which Engine Will Out Tow The Other: 1983 Carburated Chevy 454 Gas Or 2006 6.0 Turbo

I can got a guy who is trying since last year of 2017 to sell his 2006 Ford 4door F350 Longbed 6.0 Turbo Diesel Powerstroke Dually he rags on how my 1983 Silverado 4 door Duallysl 3/4 ton with a 454 Carburated V8 and turbo 400 transmission , gear ratio 4:10 gets bad mileage compared to his truck.

Which with the way I drive, in stop in go traffic here in New Orleans with the speed limit of 35 to 40 mph, I can go on 10 bucks of fuel in my Chevy truck over 27 miles as light as I'm not hard on the trottle and dot drive fast like everyone else does. Which I drive safely. In a 40 mph speed zone I drive under 35 mph.

By the way his truck had problems with the turbi which he spent over 1100 bucks on a new turbo which he put in it last year, needs a new freeze plug now and maybe injector.

Is his truck really better compared to mines due to his being a Diesel?
