So based on things I've been reading about newer diesels I'm even wondering if I should be owning and driving a diesel and I'm curious people's opinion.

90% of my driving is city driving and starting and stopping the truck about 8 to 12 times a day and most of my trips are only about 3 to 5 miles. My highway trips are about 10 to 12 miles and maybe twice a week

About once a month I tow a 8,000-lb trailer about 12 miles.
Occasionally during the summer I will tow another 8,000 lb trailer also city driving the same scenario as above with starting and stopping about a dozen times a day and also each trip only being a few miles.

am I looking for more problems and am I doing more damage to my Duramax with this kind of driving???
