    Last week 10 gallons of Rotella T4 was $142.00 at Sams Club. Oil filter is about $20 if you buy a case (6). Easy change oil spout appx $30. Piece of cake changing oil in a DD13/15. I leave the fuel filters for the pros as I'm not fond of using the priming system on the trucks.

    want to prolong life span of your DD engine?
    1. 15-18k oil changes . Crank bearings will last longer.
    2. improve lubrication of diesel. This will make injector's/fuel pump lifespan longer and they will work more accurate. Liners crack because of injectors. Overspraying.
