Oil and Fuel Filter Change

Anyone know of a decent priced place to get an oil change and fuel filters changes near Huntsville, AL. Freightliner service center is very expensive. $1,500 just for the oil change.

Most any auto repair place can do the oil and filter change. really a simple DIY job
If you are able you can you tube oil change on your model and see how it's done

Well, since the OP is talking Freightliner, we are talking about diesel pusher... which would limit the places to take it.
still doable as DIY if willing and able, but we are measuring oil to drain/fill in the 19-33 quart ranges from what I have seen.
I also expect Freightliner is doing a little more than just oil change, but is it $1500 worth?

Sounds way to high

Oil and filters here at the truck stop will run about 250 including lube for a DP

SPEEDCO is owned by Love's Truck Stops and specialize in quick lube bays for large commercial trucks and RV's. Quick and experienced but not sure of pricing. They are located along interstates and mostly adjacent to truck stops. You can park in some of their lots overnight but noise levels are high. $1,500 seems off the chart. Sometimes people quote it high so you don't come in, but rejoice in their profits if you do.
