Re: Fix for capless filler

Re: Blackstone UOA - Rotella T5

Your vehicle regens every 150 to 300 miles...period. What you saw was an 80% full forced regen warning. I have 30k miles and have never had that EVIC message. I use the suggested oil.

Re: Check your air filter

Bad, bad, bad! Poor filtration on a diesel leads to premature engine wear if you operate in less than pristine conditions. Lots of discussion on this.

Re: Draining DEF

6k to 10k is all you should get from an 8 gallon tank. Usage runs 800 to 1200 miles per gallon depending on driving style.

Re: Fuel pump nozzle trapped in capless filler

Me too. That would be a nightmare to have the trapdoor latch onto that spiral spring. I guess a coat hanger could be probed into the neck and used to push the trapdoor free.
