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

Lets be practical and think instead of lemmings that just follow.

How much "acid" is going to be in the oil from 20 hours of running?

And for the hours if you are going to follow the "time" guidelines are you going change the oil again in the spring when the oil has ZERO hours but 5 months?

I say check your oil for water and if it is good just leave it and maybe think of changing it in the spring.

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
