Mileage has nothing to do with the frequency of changing your oil, it just happens to be an average distance people drive for the amount of time the oil is used in most vehicles. This in no way is accurate of how long you should use the oil before changing it, and only an oil analysis can tell you when you have actually gotten to the point where changing the oil is needed.if you use regular oil, you just have to change it more often, every 3k.
and if you use a synthetic you can run it for over 5k. you would also save more money by using synthetic.
HAHAHA I wasn't serious about the kerosene~!Hi Morts and Yellow Rexi,
Thanks for the tips. Anyhow the idea of using hot water and boiling kerosene scars the hell out of me. The reason is water residues can severly damage the engine or can leave water vapors inside the engine compartment. Again presence of this might break down your engine oil.
