Wow,dont know anyone who goes that long between oil changes!maybe on some diesels. oil change in europe would be more expensive,think its alot to do with the Taxes on the oil.Cost me about 40US for a gallon of oil,14US for a filter.We dont have anything like those jiffy lube chain stores that can do it regularly and cheaply.Originally posted by spinmaster71@Sep 4 2007, 04:04 PM
I was visiting family in Europe this summer and they are under the belief that oil doesn't need to be changed before 25,000 miles. They asked what kind of cheap oil do we have in the states. In fact oil changes in Europe(Austria) cost about $100. Ouch!!!!.
