I like the ecoboost...but its a very complex motor and not without its critics. I've read a few issues with them. A diesel however is simpler and I like simple. Compression ignition removes all bs associated with plugs, wires, etc...more robust bocks and internals should mean longer life and yes, the mileage is a lot better especially now the gas has gotten more expensive.
