Agree. With mixed driving of short and long distance and with nightly recharging I believe the 4xe will go quite a bit further on a tank than the diesel. I test drove the diesel and liked it but want the added power and torque of the 4xe as well as the environmental benefits. The 7500 tax credit and diesel maintenance cost were also considerations.The diesel guys probably see these 4Xe posts when they click the new post button. Some don't realize they are posting in a dedicated forum and some don't understand it isnt a comparison of constant long distance drives. The 4Xe has better short distance mpg for the majority. They also don't take into account the higher cost of the diesel not only to buy but maintain. I say this as a person who would have bought a diesel if I drove enough daily miles.
