2 trucks with 220k on them and the motors haven't been touched. I know a guy with 4 Cummins. All between 300k and 500k. He doesn't know what maintenance means and they are lucky to get an oil change once a year. The only cost difference on a diesel versus gas is the turbo and injection pump. Gas motors have all the same other components.
