We have measured the electrical resistivity of Pr(Os1 - x Rux)4 Sb12, mixed crystal of the unconventional superconductor PrOs4 Sb12 and BCS-type superconductor PrRu4 Sb12, and determined the coefficients of the T2-term (A-value) in the normal states. The A-value obtained decreases with increasing x in the range of 0 < x < 0.6 and becomes constant when x > 0.6. This suggests that the mass enhancement takes place in the vicinity of x = 0.6 as well as the unconventional superconductivity.
