HI GET RID OF IT had one if you want to keep it drop the sump and strengthen oil pick up as they weight of the filter will crack the oil pump housing so when you going up hills it sucks air not oil eventualy motor will seize i went throu 2 motor before i found out the, 3rd time i was close enough to get towed home the other reason is if you look at the motor the 1.8 is actualy around 1.5 my best advice if you want good milege get a 2.6 tray get a conopy have half for your bed and you other gear on the other half works out real good no setting or pulling down tents and if you go for gas get a extension to fill you gas bottles up
