For those who are considering an interim oil change due to the possible fuel dilution problem: simply draining the oil charge and refilling with new oil, without bothering about changing the filter would probably be about 95% efficient and very easy to do.

Following my previous post I have now changed the oil and filter - 12 months from new. I carried out the service counter reset and the information screen now shows oil service at 10,000 miles. As I will most probably have a 'proper' service at 24 months I am not really that concerned about what this means.

Just bear in mind the car won’t flag up the 24 month service as it thinks it’s now due at 36 months or in 21,000 miles. The Oil Service counter will continue to countdown until it thinks it’s got 6.2% dilution and then activate the warning (as it doesn’t know it’s had an oil change).

I’ve had my oil and filter changed today by LR at 6000 miles. Free of charge.
I was expecting a battle but nothing, no problems at all, went well and good service with no grumbles.
Car was estimating dillution at 6.7% so will be interested to see the Millers sample results I sent yesterday.
Interestingly it now says oil service due in 12450 miles! We will see.

Yes that's more or less what I thought. Really stupid that the cars owner can't contribute to the service record electronically but I keep my own service notes anyway. Another interesting observation is that the sump has an insulating jacket, presumably to get the oil temperature up more quickly in cold climates. I've never seen that before but maybe its a diesel thing, or is it a new addition to help drive off fuel contamination?
