C'mon Dem45133,
Everyone likes a bit of colour,
You are entitled to your opinions, but don't expect everyone to agree with you.
Everyone here has a personal agenda,
I also drive a large vehicle and enjoy it, some say get a smaller vehicle, to those I say why don't you get out of your smaller vehicle and get on a bicycle or walk.
At the end of the day it's all a personal choice, and everyone is entitled to that, but you can always improve on what you do, if you refuse to compromise then why complain, evolution is about adapting to changing environments, evolve or die.
I always look forward to learning something new every day, I do think I know everything, but I know there is always more to learn.
Hope you hang out and stay at the party, you'll find there's lot's of fun to be had.

fuel filters are 3 to 11 microns.

The stuff which makes oil black is little chunks of carbon floating around. The carbon is soft and gooey and won't hurt your engine, and it does burn quite well.

However, the carbon goo will plug your fuel filter. Myself, I would recommend a 5 micron filter for the used motor oil.

and as to no smoke, how dare you base personal knowledge against the collected wisdom of all the armchair tailgunners who deign to help you.

As to smoke, the opinion of the guy behind is a lot more valuable than that of the guy behind the wheel :-)
