You don’t say if you need to move wood AND kids at the same time, but if you don’t you could get a Chrysler minivan with the stow and go seats that fold into the floor. Just throw down a big moving blanket to keep things clean.

If you can drive a stick you’ll eke out a couple more mpg’s on a truck.

You can also buy a new car for the family duty and increased mileage and get a beater truck or van to move wood – you did say you wouldn’t need the truck’s capabilities most of the time, so why commit yourself to driving one 100 percent of the time?

Diesel may get you better mileage, but they are crazy expensive to begin with.
