Yearly Oil & Filter change = about $950... sound about right?

Onan 7.5 Kw diesel Gen (fuel, oil, air filters + oil change)

Caterpillar 3176 325hp turbo (fuel, oil, air filters + oil change)

My trusted shop gets me for $93 an hour but they are EXTREMELY competitant.

Am i getting hosed?

I do everything myself for $200.Oil fuel,line air and genset.all oil Only thing is the ISM air filter is $110. Add $20 for hydro-hot
I vote for getting hosed if you can do it yourself, but not out of line if you don't

I just went to speedco and had the oil changed, new oil filter, grease job, they checked the oil in the hubs, checked tires, two new fuel filters, and checked the pH of the radiator fluid = $179.00. They will also do the maintenance on the generator but I'm not sure of the price.

1 water filter = $12.98 bucks
1 trans. filter = $25.26 bucks
18 quarts, durex ATF = $79.20 bucks
1 gen oil filter = $9.68 bucks
1 gen fuel filter = $10.95 bucks
1 gallon anti-freeze = $8.70 bucks (they flushed radiators on both engine & gen)
1 gear oil = $6.50 bucks
1 gen air filter = $16.79 bucks
1 engine air filter = $28.78 bucks
(some misc. nuts & bolts = $2.76 bucks (generator was not secured)

Here in the bay area labor is on average now between 130.00 - 150.00 an hour. Anything under 100$ per is cheap in my humble opinion.Why not try to do it yourself and see if it's worth saving 600$?
