Hi, I bought my first diesel car a week or so back, a 2.4 Brera. I am very happy with it although I am struggling with the sound and characteristics of the Diesel engine. I am paranoid about oil and filter changes, it seems to say the car will tell me when, and I am sure I saw a mileage indicator come on saying it will be due in 7k miles or so. The oil is a disgusting colour and could do with topping up so my logic says change it. Am I being too cautious ? I have read loads on this topic and the "experts" seem to say we do change our oil too frequently, obviously it will not harm the engine but it will hurt the pocket.
While on this topic, in my 156JTS, a great car I always used "branded" fuel, never supermarket, are are diesel fuels equal? I have a pal that does bio fuel, what are the thoughts on that.
