**WARNING** Using Diesel for Engine Flushing

For those of you that use diesel to flush your motor for an oil change to remove sludge etc, beware that diesel fuel no longer contains any where near as much sulphur to act as a lubricant as it once did

Talking to a well respected diesel mechanic in adelaide, he is now seeing many more people in for engine issues that ever before, his buisness has gone from rebuilding 20 diesel motors a year to approx 150 since the introduction of low sulphur diesel

So heed his warning before you go and start running your engine on diesel (when replacing the oil), otherwise it may cost you many thousands for that quick oil change. If it needs flushing buy an additive, its much cheaper and will save your motor

Will i be running my engine with diesel in the crankcase "you have to be kidding"

Sorry for the repost, dut i needed a more descriptive thread title
