Diesel - oil change 6,250 miles.

Post by willsinc » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:12 pm

I'm wondering if I am misinterpreting, but my service book appears to say that you need to change the oil and filter every 6,250 miles (for all diesel's 2018 and later). Can anyone advise?

Thanks

All 2019 YM Diesel HRV do require an intermediate oil change at 6250miles, this is due to having to meet the latest emission regulations since WLTP and RDE were introduced. To be able to meet these the engine has to increase the amount of DPF regeneration that the engine does and this intern causes higher levels of engine oil dilution with un-burnt fuel, therefore the oil needs to be change more regularly.

Thank you Steve_m, that makes sense. Do you know if this applies to other diesel vehicles, or is it just the HRV (just out of interest)?
