What is the dimensions of the nissan filter?
Want to compare it to the GUD z226 - which just looks too small for such a big vehicle...

Same size as the GUD Z226..... After dealing with diesel filters it looks tiny but they have been running for years without problems. Much easier to change as well and no mess :rolling: :rolling:

So how often will you change the oil, every 15k (same as service interval) or sooner?

Still every 10 000 km. I know the Delo would probably still be fine after 20 000 km but I am too OCD to do that.

This post reminded me to check what it looks like as I have done 4 500 km and it is still clear with not even a tinge of discolouration.
