How often do you change oil in a diesel truck?
Diesel trucks burn fuel differently than non-diesel vehicles. That means that filter changes are critical to optimum performance. Most diesel vehicles utilize two filters to properly support the function of your diesel engine. Both need to be changed regularly to protect your vehicle from accelerated deterioration. Your diesel mechanic will provide you with a maintenance plan that can help you schedule regular oil changes.
How long do diesel trucks last?
Part of the appeal of a diesel truck is its longevity. Diesel trucks can last for over 350,000 miles when maintained properly. Depending on the amount you drive each year, your truck can drive for decades or longer.
Do diesel trucks get better gas mileage?
A diesel truck engine operates differently than a standard car engine. Diesel fuel also packs more energy into every gallon than standard gasoline. Some vehicles can get 50 miles per gallon or more. As with any vehicle, maintenance is key to supporting the function of the engine. Don’t let problems fester and never neglect routine tasks like oil changes.
Why do trucks use diesel?
Diesel engines provide more torque using less fuel energy than their standard gasoline counterparts. They do not require spark plugs to ignite fuel, reducing the wear and tear found in combustion fuel engines. Diesel fuel provides more energy per gallon than regular gasoline, too. While there are standard modern engines than can compete with diesel engines, they still will not offer the same effectiveness, power and performance, nor the engine longevity.
How much is an oil change for a diesel truck?
Give Honest Accurate Auto Service a call to request the current rates for a diesel oil change.
What is the cost per mile to drive a diesel pickup truck?
Like any other vehicle, your cost per mile depends on your engine, fuel quality, speed, road conditions and much more. Are you towing a vehicle? Have you maintained your diesel oil filters? You can get a baseline by calculating the average miles per tank and dividing by the overall volume of your tank. When purchasing a diesel vehicle, review mileage promises carefully to determine city mileage and over-the-road mileage per gallon.
Just the Facts: Diesel Engine Data You Need to Know
- Diesel is less flammable than gas. Pressure is what makes diesel fuel ignite, not flames. We do not recommend throwing matches in the gas tank to test this science, but it’s cool to know it’s possible.
- Diesel fuel improves gas mileage at high altitudes – like those found in Colorado. As with the famous electric vehicles that win the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, diesel vehicles are not as affected by the limited oxygen available at higher altitudes.
- Diesel works better with steady speeds. Keep your RPMs under 2,000 for the best fuel efficiency.
