Oil Change Intervals

Oil must always be changed at the latest after the number of kilometers driven indicated by the car manufacturer has been reached. The maximum change interval is shortened by, for example:

  • driving in town and at short distances

  • driving in winter and with cold engine

  • dusty conditions

  • too high temperatures  

Even though oil quality increases and can endure the longer change intervals allowed by engine manufacturers, the cheapest way to prolong the life of an engine is to change oil at sufficiently regular intervals.
