Get an SCT and custom tunes. I run the SRL from Matt at Gearhead Automotive and love the tune. Since you are studded, you could safely run the SRL++.

Fuel!
Let's talk about something we all need to know!
How do you know you are getting "Good" fuel????
How do you know when it's cold if you should just go back in the house or try to crank up that cold diesel????
Answer - Sample your fuel! More specific.....Put a clear plastic bottle in your cab. Make sure your diesel nozzles will fit into the bottle. When you are filling the tank fill it about 1/2 way and then pull out of the tank and just put a few oz. in the bottle. Why???
If the fuel is dirty? Stop fueling, get your receipt and look for the manager!
If it's clean and clear you know what is in your tank. Next morning when it's 20 below, you walk outside open your rear door and look at your bottle. Turn it upside down. If it doesn't flow, go back inside! You don't want to start that diesel. Damage can result. If it's cloudy and does flow then go ahead. Crank her up.
Also watch your filters. I never see dirty filters unless I get a bad load of fuel.

How do you know you are changing your oil enough????

Oil analysis!

Oil analysis costs usually approx 25 to 35 bucks. Pull a lot? Sample your oil!!!!!

I know some fleets using fuel usage to determine when to change oil.

Best to test. If anyone wants info I can suggest a lab to send your oil too. Usually e-mail results within 7 days including shipping.

I have worked with Fleets and small businesses getting their maintenance costs in line.

Default Fuel???

As far as what I pay is 20.00 plus shipping and I get a good battery of tests. We can go into it if you like. Predictive Maintence - Urichville, Ohio


Does any one in here talk about fuel? The new ultra low sulphur diesel? Additives?
Lubricants?
Service Intervals?
DEF?
Filters?
ETC.
I have a lot of knowledge in those areas including oil analysis.
Oil analysis is the lab checking you old oil to see what is in there.
Dirt, High wear metals, Gycol, oxidize the oil, acids etc.
