Don't know where you get the qualifications for that comment, but I'm still trying to figure out whether or not you're advocating arson to defraud.

.....this is Cincinnati.....we have a different attitude about things since we are stuck with a neutered police department......thank city council for increasing the crime rate.....anyway Check with your insurance company as to what they are investigating currently.....you might be supprised as to what the gasoline squeeze is doing to the insurance adjusters......."keeping them busy as a one armed brick layer"......"80% increase in MPG can happen if you select approperate driving practices"-check out your local AAA for pointers........".....I have 4 diesels and I get 12 mpg with the biggest[HDT Volvo 610] and 50mpg with the smallest[VW TDI golf].....just keeping up with maintenance will change your MPG radically....air cleaners changed by filter monitor not time and mileage.....geofkaye

Call Freightliner factory service centers ask them for prices for 1st 2nd & 3rd factory services you will be surprised as to the high cost of service at these places compared to a gasser. The frequency of maint. is less but the costs are sky high, if you are looking to save by going for a deisel sell it and go to an upscale hotel. On the other hand there is no comparison between deisel and gas. They handle better run smoother are more comfortable etc etc but you pay for it.

I just had my first service done on a new HR Neptune with a Cummins 300, Allison 5 speed and Onan diesel generator. Price out the door was $662, of which $157 was parts / oil. The service included oil, oil filter and fuel filter change on the engine, filter change and fluid top-off on the transmission, oil and filter change on the generator. In addition, a chassis lube, brake inspection / adjustment etc. I don't feel ripped-off although the price is higher than I would like. I suppose I could have done it myself, although for the first service, I am happy to have expert eyes looking at the coach. I got my service at R Mechanic in Livermore, Ca. I am quite pleased with this service center at this time, this is my first experience with them.
