Default Good Youtube channel

I'll also mention Neil's Youtube channel, Ultramobility. Lots of good info, and I like the way he thinks about Class B RVs - intelligent & thoughtful commentary about everything from plain old practical usage to all sorts of topics around tech vs. quality vs. cost.

One state we would like to visit is already at B10 and is enacting a B20 mandate beginning May 1st this year. MB warranty is crystal clear, as illustrated in their “Mercedes-Benz Biodiesel Brochure”. We are in love with the Sprinters, however we are left wondering how we could handle this issue as biodiesel mandates for blends higher than B5 are becoming required in some states.

It happened to my van, by heating oil pan Sprinter rewarded me with P0196 gift. The CPU found a hot oil and a cold coolant confusing.
