Quote from: CBarge
My cost is 174.90 taxes included..
There goes the money I made delivering pizza this weekend.
Just cannot seem to get ahead.
But at least when I do deliver I will put on the old cop rims and used 2157015 tires I can grab from the scrap pile.
I will no longer use the new rims and tires delivering.
At least it is for only a few hours an night on weekends only.
Bottom line I need a 4 cyl beater box to deliver in.
The wagon is a big hit with the pizza customers (mostly college students) and that is reflected in the good tips I recieved.
I was averaging 4.18 per order in tips.
I have a small area to cover  (mostly college campus of 3 major colleges) so the wagon does not get  driven hard at all.
I take my time 'cause speeding is just not worth it.
Starting in 1973, Domino's Pizza had a guarantee that customers would receive their pizzas within 30 minutes of placing an order, or they would receive the pizzas free. The guarantee was reduced to $3 off in the mid 1980s. In 1992, the company settled a lawsuit brought by the family of an Indiana woman who had been killed by a Domino's delivery driver, paying the family $2.8 million. In another 1993 lawsuit, brought by a woman who was injured when a Domino's delivery driver ran a red light and collided with her vehicle, the woman was awarded nearly $80 million, but accepted a payout of $15 million.[48] The guarantee was dropped that same year because of the "public perception of reckless driving and irresponsibility", according to Monaghan.
 
 
Paddy cake, paddy cake pizza man,

Try servicing a big truck.  11 gallons of oil.  269.99 is our deal at major truck stop chains.  We have 330 trucks.  Do the math.....

Yes, but you don't have to change that 11 gallons of oil every 3000-5000 miles, which helps.

No kidding. What is the normal interval of oil change with that volume? I would figure you could go at least three months, even with that amount of driving, maybe a filter change at 15K or so.

But as you know, mine has been modified.  Even more since you saw it.  It's really clean now.  I can't make this thing smoke, no matter what I do.  So the oil has been staying much cleaner

We do oil changes every 30k and a "short service" which is fuel filters and a lube at 10 and 20k between changes.  For trucks over 500k miles or severe duty heavy haul, we dump at 15k, and a short service at 7500.  We are contemplating going to 50k between oil changes on the under 500k trucks, Chevron says we can.

I would think you could, especially if short services are done in between, helps filter a little bit better in between. Since the diesels turn slower and as long as the oil pressure is good, should not be an issue, oil itself doesn't break down, contaminants within it is what the problem is, wears parts out because the micron particles start collecting in bad places and slowly grind things down.
 
I had to laugh when I heard the first "recycled oil" commercials. All oil is recycled one way ro another (unless you dump it down a drain).
