This recommends 60~70% of load for the first 10 hours (1000 klm equivalent) of operation with the first 50hrs being critical and to avoid extended periods of idling and light loads.

Enjoy the read!

We are talking Mitsubishi Pajero engines not Yanma boat motors. If all else fails read the Pajero Manual that came with your vehicle. Yes it is in there.
