You can set it to what your oil change intervals are in the menu settings

are we back to days with 3 months/3000 oil changes intervals?
If I am not mistaken we are at 5000 miles/6 months or for severe 3/3...

And then - same engine, just in Pro Cee'd GT in UK, or in Germany (did not check Ozzie country) requires 10'000 miles or 12 months.
Weird, huh?

CANADA: 2018 F5: Engine oil (1.6 TGDI) Replace every 10,000 km (6,500 miles) or 6 months




I guess Europe must be getting much better oil then USA.


Anyway, I go 5000 miles or 6 months. It turns out to be more or less same for my driving.

Here is mine take.

What I do not get is how come I got the service in km, while it is in miles... Could it be due to Celsius and 24 hr clock?

Here (Canada) it specifies every 5000 kms/6 months (for severe usage)... but it may just be the norm because everywhere in Canada can be considered severe usage lol

And just for laughs it doesn't actually classify the T-GDI motor anywhere for normal usage, only the MPI engine.

OH snap. Then again, you can deduce that they're talking about conventional motor oil.

the oil looks dark thick and dirty after 3k of driving any sort of way.
maybe the oil is still good technically but i don't want to chance it.
if anyone wants to use theirs till 6k i will sell you my old oil for half price. :)

nice video.

I would not really agree on the ATF though. Even if they say - lifetime fill - I would still change it from time to time.
I guess life time is rather the warranty life... so if you want it to last more than 100k miles, do it. :)
