How Often Do You See Diesels?

So I bring this up cause up until today I haven't seen a single diesel in SoCal (except my own). For whatever reason I have seen two today. A fully loaded blue Trail Boss in El Centro and a Canyon that was leveled and mud terrain tires in Victorville. (I truck drive so I'm around a lot)
How often is everyone seeing diesels around where they live?

I have only seen one other in the Manassas/Woodbridge, Virginia area. It's a red Colorado. Even then I've only ever seen it twice in the last few months. I see the gassers everywhere.

I do know that my dealer was supposed to be getting 2 others around the time I got mine in, but I never saw those either.

I don't think I have ever seen a diesel twin anywhere other than on a dealership lot.

How Often Do You See Diesels?

I've only seen one that didn't have an 'M" plate on it. I've seen dozens of "M" plate diesels. (M is a manufacturers plate).
I have seen a lot of strange goings on lately. Like a Ford pickup in pre model release anti photo camo pulling into the GM Tech center........must be than new trans joint venture.
Followed this guy right up Mound Road to the Tech Center. Sure looks like a Ford under the camo .

Seen 2 different Canyon's out on the road. One Chevy dealer has had 5 or 6 come in they all sold quick probably ordered trucks. Chevy dealer nearest me has had one on the lot for about 5 weeks. Sticker on the truck is right at 45k. Friend of mine looked at it said they want sticker for it,so I guess it will probably sit and get washed by the dealer's lot crew. Inventory on the dealer website's has started to pick up in the last couple weeks around here. Have had my truck for almost 8 weeks.

When mine was delivered to the dealership in March, there was another one with it. I have seen no others since then

I've seen, or I should say heard 3 other baby Duramax in the past 2 weeks. One in Simi Valley, CA, black on black z71, another was on a 2 lane road around Chatworth lake reservoir in Chatworth, CA, white with brown interior, and a siliver on black Canyon in Thousand Oaks, CA. Had the windows down in the heat, heard the funny little 4 banger motor in such a big truck each time, at a stop sign or stop light... dead giveway. A 4 banger in such a big truck just doesn't sound quite right to me... sounds just like my little 1.9 liter jetta motor from 2002. I just kind of expect expect an inline 6 or a V8 diesel sound. Little motor sound, big truck appearance.

I have an unused 3208 Cat sitting on the shop loft......... 638 CID V8 diesel sounds fabulous.

Not too worried what the truck sounds like. I enjoy quiet, stealthy trucks. The less my presence is known the better. Just want to be another Gray Man and fit in, not stand out.

You must have missed me.

I was in GP last week!

I don't see many twins to begin with, gas or diesel.

Ive only seen one other Duramax in Ventura County and it was leaving the dealership where I bought mine. It had another dealer plate (unknown location).

I have not seen ANY in Raleigh, NC. I don't even see many of the trucks at all. I ran into a guy leaving a restaurant last week in a Red Hot CCSB Colorado and chatted with him a moment. He was on the v6 engine. Have probably seen more Canyons on the road around town than Colorado's, but am starting to see some WT trim Colorados being used for various business/company trucks. Have seen ZERO Dmax's though.

North central Illinois. I saw one Colorado diesel at a small GM dealership for sale several weeks ago but it is gone now. I have seen zero Canyon/Colorado diesels on the road. None of the dealerships here have any diesels on the lot. But, the Hy-Vee in Peru, IL is building Tesla supercharging stations (7) for the multitude of Teslas coming our way!

They need that much cammo for a transmission...?

I hardly see any Colorados at all.
