  • oil percentage?

    5% doesnt mean the oil is bad and is no longer doing its job. Just means change it very very soon. Oil should be changed every year or 20k miles which ever comes first. Unilateral must change his oil and tyres every other day with the miles he does

    You can reset the reading. But it will go down rapidly again. I tried doing it . It is a clever system.

      My oil life is just over 11000 miles and I don't think paying for two 20,000 services over 2 year is on the books so i do an oil filter change and other filters at 10000 and a proper Vauxhall service at 20,000 then the same at 30 and 40,000 2 oil changes and a proper service

      It is 20,000 or one year, whichever comes first. It isn't simply a 20,000 mile service.
