About us


Bud’s Diesel is a family-owned business in Huntington Beach, California, run by Paul “Bud” and Lori Anderson. Bud’s interest in diesel predates his 20-year career as a Ford-certified Master Diesel Mechanic. Once upon a time, there was a young boy who loved trucks, not just any trucks, but the all-powerful diesel trucks. Bud’s mind was consumed by something having to do with the powerful engines thundering, the black smoke dancing, and the ability to go anywhere at any time. 

Fast forward 40 years, Bud now has his own shop, completely surrounded by what he loves the most; his family, friends, and most importantly, having the opportunity and resources to be the best diesel mechanic in Orange County.

Our professional technicians, state-of-the-art technology, and commitment to maintaining the integrity and highest work standards possible have placed us in the position of being one of Orange County’s best diesel and automotive repair shops.
