I don't know! I love my gasser. I have passed many a diesel going up the side of a mountain. 5k RPM is music. I don't want anything to do with the new diesels! And I'm a CUMMINS tech! Give me a pre 2010 CUMMINS and maybe I'll consider. Until then my V-10 works for me!

I paid $54 for my oil change on my 2014 Duramax at the Chevy dealer. You guys that claim $150+ for an oil change must be doing something wrong.

I buy my oil at Walmart and change it myself. I would change the fuel filter but that's way to hard. I buy the fuel filter and let the dealer install it

I don't know what they cost. I negotiated 3 free oil changes and tire rotations when I bought the Dually in April. First one is scheduled for next week........at right at 6K miles. DIC says I have 14% left as of today, right at 5,900 miles.

X2. I think their mechanics see 'em coming in that fancy diesel and triple the prices

At $54.00 your getting a pretty darn good deal, that must be non synthetic oil.

I do my own and can hardly change it for that.

Sure I did it. Sure I kept it at 45 to 55 but it was taxing on the gasser. 5000-5500 rpms the whole way. Just not really a confortable tow on those kind of grades for extended periods of time. Lost momentum once when I got trapped behind a slow moving big rig. That was not fun in any way.
Trading in the gasser as soon as I can and upgrading to the Diesel F350 (or maybe even a Ram 3500 or GMC Denali 3500).

Diesel contingent here I come!

2015 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8281WS
2015 F250 Crew Cab
Take a real hard look at the RAM 3500 - when we were still thinking 5er, this was our choice. Cummins engine and the Aisin tranny -- while not a Allison it was darn close!

Ford Chevy Dodge whatever it this statement right here, black and white is why I'm looking at upgrading to a 2500-3500. Payloads are weak IMHO on many of today's half tons and I was shocked when I ran mine across CAT scales and I bet many 3/4 would be surprised too

I have undergone a major conversion since February.

I had a 2500 diesel. I thought "It's enough for anything out there". I was wrong. Payload was (still is, whoever owns it.......LOL) 2,286.

Fifth wheel I bought in April has 2,407 pin weight dry, probably 3,000 loaded. BAM. I was dead before I started.

So I got a Dually.

Then the arguments of diesel vs. gas go away.........ain't no gas Dually's.
