Morning all,

When we leave Innamincka we are headed to Birdsville, then around Lake Eyre and towards Alice Springs - by the time we get there the Nissan will need a service i.e. - oil and filters change. Anyone in Alice recommend a place where I can get that done at short notice - I'll have the filters but not the oil.

PS - Diesel here in Tamworth is at $1.85.9 yesterday. I paid $1.65.9 in CaneToad land last week sob sob.

This time in 5 weeks we will be on our way to Innamincka WooooooooHooooooooooooo.

Cheers

John,

A "Hairy" bloke may be able to help you out but be warned that he is a Cruiser driver as well as a Queensland supporter so you will be in for an education LOL

Go the MAROONS

Hi John
We have had work done by Ashley Whear at Country Diesel Maintenance, 20 Fogarty Street, Alice Springs. His Phone number is 8952 1712

We were recommended by locals

Thanks for the name and address/phone number. As I posted - I'll have the filters but don't want to carry the 20 litre drum of oil for 5000k's - just as easy to pay someone else to do the job and dispose of the waste oil for this trip.

I'll let the business know they come recommended.

Hi John
They do a first rate job. Speaking to quite a few people up in the Alice, and they speak very highly of them and I was told that they do quite a lot of work for the local communities, for the one reason is that they get a good job done the first time round.
Have a great trip.

Cheers
