Nice, can't have clean enough oil. I will do 2 more in the next 4 weeks. 1 before our 2000 mile round camping trip and another right after we get home 9 days apart.

New at all this. Does the torque come from the turbo?

Tq comes from the extra push on the down stroke from the slow burning fuel in the combustion chamber. As it is burning all the way down and not a explosion like in a gas engine

So you are changing oil 2x in 2000 miles?

No seeing that there is two fuel filters, I am guessing they can be easily changed by us shady tree mechanics in the driveway?
