I concur. I am almost the exact same story. 2-3 weeks I may only drive 2 miles each way to my garage, one highway trip if lucky. Then just tow 1600 miles round trip to Va. But not one issue and I think I am at 16 months ownership and 13K ? I read somewhere it was designed this way also, for soccer moms. Just drove 165 miles today and 28 mpg, cant beat it. I think if you live in a very cold climate up north and do alot of short trips, that may be an issue where one would consider gas over diesel.While all of the above is true, I would add that the LM2 is probably one of the most forgiving light diesels designed. It was put together for the average person who wants the advantages that a diesel has to offer. It can handle short trips better than any other dmax as it has been designed for a daily driver type mode. I have never seen one on any of the forums I read (and I read many) "Gummed up" from short or non use. This vehicle comes up to temp as fast as any I've owned and completes regens in shorter mileage than any I've owned, even if interrupted. I've drove it 1k in a day and I've drove it less than a mile per day for 2-3 weeks straight. Not a whimper out of it either way.
