$220 for my ISL 400 and in and out in 1 hour as I was passing through. No appointment. I'll definitely do it again next year. :-)

All oil starts out the same. The difference comes down to the additive package and with over 35 yrs of owning and running diesels, having oil analysis done and with chemical support just doesn't hold up as well imo I usually get around 18000 hrs or a million miles depending on engine application between oh's
Just my preference every body has their own

a cheap good place on the road seems most are happy with their work and price so was just wondering what they used. Thanks for the responses

Last week I stopped in to the Speedco located just west of Knoxville, Tn. I feel that I got outstanding service and the folks are so pleasant to work with. I had my ISC lubed, tire pressure checked, fuel filters replaced, front bearing lubricant checked, differential fluid checked and oil analysis. Total cost was $68.00 which includes the price of the filters!!! Sure is nice to not pay the highway robbery prices found at RV service centers and Cummins dealers who are now charging upwards of $650 for a full service oil change.

Oil analysis indicated oil still in new condition with no contaminates and lubricity of oil was still like new, after about 5,000 miles. I had intended to have the oil changed since it has been over a year since it was changed but the Speedco manager suggested the oil analysis. I will definitely use Speedco again and I have used Rotella oil since my unit was new as I did in a previous owned Cummins engine. This particular Speedco center had the fleetguard filters that are called for on my engine. Another nice feature is they treat you as a valued customer, showing you what they are doing....no "stay out of the bay due to insurance regulations." Sure is nice to find people who give great service. I'm a fan of Speedco!

Just returned from Alamo Tx, where I had a oil and lube job at " Lube Master===Plus", on my Dutchstar Cat 330. The cost was around $120 minus allowances for my filter and the adding of 4 qts. of Lucas Oil Additive (my preference). Shell oil was used. The fact that commercial trucks were getting oil and lube jobs convinced me to try them. This is the second time I have used them and will again.

But I'll bet with OTR rigs you changed on mileage rather than time. What I'd like to know is, did you ever find any chemical breakdown with Rotella at 10,000 miles which is what I drive in my mh per year, when the oil gets changed on time basis.
