Speedco was $299 for Rotella including fuel and oil filters. I can't tell now because Love's bought them out and the website is totally jacked.

It's really not important. It's not that much more than a gas oil change and compared to the overall costs of ownership, this one is simply not something you need to be thinking about.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Mine takes about 15.5 liters (4 and one half US gallons). I just picked up a couple boxes of Chevron Delo 400 from Costco for $60.00, $10.00 a gallon. My oil filters from Cummins cost less than $10.00. I find it much easier to do an oil change on the motorhome than my car. For me, about $60.00.

I do my own, takes five gallons of Rotella oil for diesel engines and I buy my oil filter for about twenty five bucks. So all together about ninety dollars. I have the Caterpillar 3126-E holds 19 quarts of oil.
