Congratulations!
Oil changes for my Can Am Spyder are usually about $250.
Anything less than that, and I'm a happy camper!

I didn't realize a small turbo diesel took 13qts! My bad! I drove truck for 20 yrs and knew they took a bunch. When the dipstick shows add on them it takes a gallon, instead of a quart. I should have researched before opening my mouth... LOL

I don't think that the charge for the oil change will even cover the cost of all of that oil!

Our Gemini on the Mercedes Sprinter chassis takes 14 quarts of 100% synthetic oil, and its only a 3.0L diesel. It does, however get between 16 and 17MPG.
