    Hey, quick question hauling containers local how often are you getting oil changes and changing air filters with these dirty dusty railyards?

    I have a 2012 Volvo VNL d13 i just want to compare to other trucks seems like i lose power after about 8k miles seems to start getting clogged, fresh oil change seems to do justice for truck
