    It's the middle of the night mate. I'm sure somebody will get back to you.
    I dont have a clue when it comes to engine's sorry.
    Leave it for more than a hour. Even more in the middle of the night.

    First things first stop driving it immediately!

    As for what the problem is i dont know, but if you are ending up with Oil in the Fuel filter, something is pretty wrong i'd say.

    You are putting the oil in the engine and not the fuel tank, right? That's the hole on the top of the engine, not where the fuel goes in. Because there is no other way oil can get in the filter.

    If it's using coolant AND oil, then it's got to be head gasket failure.

    Not a good test - any turbo will have oil in the pipes.
