Re: 20 hours on diesel this summer. change oil or not?

If you look at most new boat/car/truck/motorbike etc etc engine service requirements, you will usually see the intervals of oil change in miles/kilometres/hours and a time period followed by "whichever comes first"......

The reason for the time period is as others have stated regarding acidity in the oil possibly doing damage while just sitting.....

There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken advantage of at the flood, leads over the reef, on to adventure. Those men who fore go this high water of their life are forever left to ponder, a life bound wallowing in the shallows.......Julius Caesar
