About 80,000 miles since I added a FPHE.
It is a stock dual tank, but one tank leaks so I run it single tank with a 50/50 mix in warm weather.


1-tank Elsbett VW TDI , 220,000 WVO miles.

and a '92 F-250 with only a FPHE

Sweet, man. Have you checked blowby or had an oil analysis done?

The oil fill cap can stay on the opening while idling.
But I haven't done a real blowby test.

One fiend who did gunk up his s.t. ID VW was able to pop the dipstick up due to blowby.

No oil analysis

That's really cool. I do miss how easy (and cheap) it was to replace injectors on those IDIs.
