    That's concerning ,I would probably consider adding an injector pump lube or something to the fuel ,I have heard some people use a mineral 2 stroke oil in small quantities ,I have experimented with it myself in older type diesels, ie non common rail without issue.

    how did you find this out ?????
    if by legit means I'd be sending them the bills for all the effort, issues and inevitable damages ..... plus consequentials obviously ... make the b'stards pay
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
