Gas prices have gone up steadily the past month so that regular unleaded is now more expensive than diesel #2. This is when having a diesel pays even more back as not only do we get at least 30% better mpg we now are paying less for fuel.
my oil changes cost 20.00, how much are yours? how much does the dpf cost to clean or replace? 16 spark plugs cost me 35.00, how much do 6 glow plugs cost?
My oil changes are every 12k miles and I use Luqui Moly Long Time Synthetic oil 229.51 spec ($50 for 10 liters shipped - takes 9.5 liters). Wix filters cost $12 at O'Reilly auto parts.
DPF has not yet been cleaned or replaced so $0 (I know of very few DPFs that have needed replacement yet). I plan on deleting it and getting an ECU tune (already have the DPF delete pipe sitting on the shelf).
I have 99k miles on the diesel WK now and have not replaced a glow plug yet. But if I have to they cost $20 each and I will only have 6 to replace. So $0 thus far.
I'm just happy this is the first time diesel has cost less than regular unleaded since I bought my CRD. Last summer it went below premium which I was ok with. I know that in the winter diesel costs more b/c its use as a heating oil and winter blend adds more cost.
