Very similar story to my own.

Chopped the RRS in soon as it showed a smidgen of +ve equity on the PCP, with about 6 months to run on the OE warranty, as I simply could not trust it any more, what ...

Have discovered today an issue with Halfords AdBlue and JLR vehicles.

Some people have been having "incorrect fluid detected - no engine restart in 500 miles" type error messages, when us ...

I don't understand this.

Since the filters are designed to be changed at 16000 mile intervals, if someone is changing their oil at 4000 miles, the filter is only 25% through its service life.

Very sensible approach, the filter should not need changing for these intermediate, low mileage, oil changes.

You would hope so, but in reality that isn't the case. All the prestige marques have their issues.

And yet if you look at the reliability heroes, most of them are from "budget" vehicles. ...

JLR say that running at >40mph for 20 minutes is enough, but frankly, I doubt that EGTs get high enough to "light off" the DPF at that low a load.

In my RRS, I did >20k miles pa, ma ...

The exhaust gas temperature of a diesel engine directly correlates with load.

DPFs are designed to passively regenerate when exhaust gas temperatures are high enough, i.e. when the engine is workin ...

Yes, when the engine is working hard enough for exhaust gas temperatures to naturally be high enough to burn off the carbon in the DPF.

Well, diesel fuel isn't a "non oil" product. So while your Professor friend is right, he is not really comparing apples with apples.

It is just a low viscosity oil with very little lubric ...

Oh and Millers Oils do a good analysis service Send you containers and labelling and all.

In my experience Dealers do NOT do a proper quantitative oil analysis - they simply interrogate the ECU to see what the algorithm tells them the oil dilution figure is. i.e. it is a calculated figure. ...
