Jeep Diesel vs Mt Washington Auto Road

Did the 7.4 miles getting 7.2 MPG. I thought the engine was very impressive. It pretty much walked up effortlessly. Had the oil temp pegged at 237 the whole way.

if you do a blackstone analysis after 1000 miles you will see higher concentrations of metals in the oil. obviously they are not caught by the filter. while not particularly bad for the engine,...
