    Speedco / Loves increased their pricing enough to feel the pinch.
    $440 for Cummins ISX PM with conventional Rotella & Trailer grease. About 25% for me.

    Just heads up. Don't be surprised when you get there for PM.

    I think they upcharged all what they could. Looking for more revenue.
    I am sure that mega carriers have decent discounts with them and won't feel it as much.
    The guy over there told me that quite a number of o/o just left after they heard their quote.

    I'll try to do PMs at home based shops for almost half that price. It's been just convenient at Speedco.

    I do mine at home, cost less than $200.
    N14 motor. I didn't know if the newer trucks required more filters or if more labor was involved.

    Scales: $ 879.50


    Get yourself a rightweigh system for your truck & trailer. it's only a few hundred and you'd have paid for it already in not needing so many scale tickets.
     
    LondRanger and TallJoe Thank this.

    tolls.. I assume being you are in Chicago you are running the hell out of 80/90/76.. You ever try route 30 south of Gary, IN? it's not too bad of a run going east from there and gets you off the toll routes. Then you just scoot back up to 80 in Akron. I always run that route if I'm going that way unless it's a time crunch.,
     
    TallJoe Thanks this.
