I think the 6 cyl. benz diesel Navion I used to own was a 13 qt. change; and with a fuel and oil filter cost me around $90 to $100 with me doing it. Longer between oil changes and a little better mileage, but a big difference when you have to have repairs.

I used 7 qts of fully synthetic oil and a genuine Ford Motorcraft oil filter and is it cost me $30 to do myself.

As a bonus, it looks like I will not have the annoying oil change reminders; so nothing to reset which means no grease monkey fingers on the my steering wheel trying to push buttons to reset the computer.

Wow. OK, Bob, you have provided me with a better campfire story than mine. I still have a glow plug story though and a $4k repair bill to keep the diesel alive.

I hope your oil change included the fuel filter.

I have F-53 6.8 liter v10 under my Sunstar 29VE

I also have plenty room underneath to use my harbor freight creeper roller without having to raise any of the wheels or use hydraulic lift

The Fords do use less oil and cash for their oil changes.
