    Is the Hilux mechanical injection? Similar to a 6bt or 4bt?

    Judging from the link above, it looks as though they will be getting the engine from VM Motori. That is the same company GM is getting the engine for their new diesel Cruze, if I remember correctly. They are also the same company that built the engines in the Liberty CRD.

    I read that the Hilux is CR injected. It would then be similar to this engine that Dodge is using. The downfall will be the EPA emissions strangling the Dodge engine, therefore the mileage potential not being fully realized.

    the bad thing is ,it will probably still be in the high 40,ooo price range so you might as well get a 3/4 or ton .

    I will gladly buy 2 batteries every 7 years (I bought mine at the dealer), 2.5 gallons of oil every 5,000 miles, $30 fuel filters every 10,000 miles, and a $10 Allison spin-on filters every 10,000 miles

    Why are you changing your oil at 5,000 mile intervals?

    Were you doing oil analysis?

    Most diesel engine have oil change intervals of 5,000 miles.  My truck uses 3.75 gallons.  Farm and heavy equipment of course goes by hours.

    No need to change the oil if it isn’t bad and still have life left in it……oil analysis’ are cheap

    I am getting 12,000-15,000 miles out of my oil

    No I’m not doing an oil analysis on the oil. GM recommends 10,000 miles, which is what the DIC is programmed at stock. Changing the oil at 5,000 miles is cheap insurance for me. I don’t like running oil that long. I will say the oil (John Deere and Valvoline) looks practically the same draining out than it did when I put it in.

    Precisely, especially when the oil is cooling the turbo bearing.
