Her name was Teri... she didn't use lube
'twas damn near the proverbial "$1000 oil change".

...but the next service won't be until 50K miles and its schedule A so it is cheaper

I dunno what all they changed but I averaged 22mpg driving home where as I averaged 19.8 driving there.
I wonder if there is something to this BG D.O.C. "diesel additive" they put in the thing?

It is a "Diesel Oil Conditioner" - anybody know anything about it?

I think that's the lube Teri didn't use.

I think that will work out well. What about trying to find something with a hint of a blue pinstripe to it. Or maybe just some accent piping? Something close to the blue of your pedal bike? Don't mind me it is late and I am

We're not a fan of blue for this application. Blue is a "cold" spectrum color - the goal for the inside of the van is for all of the colors to be warm - considering it is such a cold metal box by default. The accent color we'll be using is orange (but not in the interweave).

Gotta balance the ying and yang

They reprogrammed your ecm. That could be part of the mpg change.

I think you should do it up with the brown, white and orange shag carpeting from the 1970's.

Here is an example of a place I'll be using the (ktm ) orange trim:



I'm working on the door cabinet right now... As I try and mate everything to 'the egg' it keeps getting more and more complicated
