    Miles between oil change

    I know the owners manual says 10K, but what is the average number of miles most travel before changing it. I have 4000 on my oil now and plan a 2200 mile trip very soon. Advice on if it should be changed before leaving? thanks

    Welcome to the forum!

    Everyone has their own opinion on this subject, so this is just my take, for what it's worth.

    First: The quality of the metallurgy in today's engines has come a long way, so has the quality of oil. The Evoque uses full synthetic oil, AND it takes 6 quarts. That is two more than most 4 cylinder engines use. The more oil in the sump, the more particles can be suspended and the longer it will last.

    Second: I don't believe any manufacturer would specify an interval that would lead to premature failure of their engines. Just wouldn't be very good business for repeat customers.

    IMHO just follow the owners manual, for intervals and type of oil.

    my first Evoque, I changed at 10Kmi per the manual. My 2nd evoque was purchased as a "certified pre-owned" from a dealer, and was their loaner/demo vehicle. So, lotsa short trips I gather. the message center told me that I needed to change the oil at 6,500 miles... which I did. so, the vehicle will tell you if it thinks that you need to change it sooner.

    Today synthetics are pretty amazing. I do mine at 7500 miles so I sleep better...

    Do we need to use a socket to remove the filter? What size and brand? I would appreciate for any suggestions. Thanks
