Td6 Early service indicator - <<16,000 miles

My service indicator came on at under 5,000 miles. This is apparently a known problem related to perhaps overzealous active regeneration causing faster than expected oil dilution. Oil dilution, over time, is very, very bad.

My service advisor reset my SIL, which resets the oil dilution "clock". This may compound the problem.

Service bulletin:

UK thread detailing others' experiences:

I've sent the bulletin to my SA, will see what they say. Naturally, this was not mentioned when I was in last week having the SIL reset.

Yes, I do take it off-road.
