i see alot of couiers etc threw work and it got me thinking about servicing.

i service every 5k and cost about $40bucks for sysm syn oil and filter. i do alot of ks so i always service by the ks not the run time.

how much are your service costs and does anyone do it by run time?

My AU gets costs about $120 in oil and filter, get that every 10 000. With a lesser oil i would be doing it every 5000km

My patrol gets 10.5L of heavy duty diesel oil at $90 and two Z115 oil filters at $11 each.
Gets done every 5000km.

My customers pay between $160 and $210 for none log book services. Intervals depend on customer preference and manufacturer recomendations.

Mums car gets done on a time basis, she normally does 3500-4500km in 6 months.
So by her logbook it gets serviced every 6 months. The intervals for her mazda3 are 10 000km OR 6 months. (don't forget people it is which ever occurs first)

I change my oil & filter at 5,000km intervals....and as it turns out, it's usually about 6 months too.
I use Mitsubishi 15W50 engine oil and Motorcraft filter.....costs about 35 to 40 dollars.....depending on who I get when I get served.
Oil is cheap compared to engine repairs.

Haha, i think I pay about $150 for a service when I'm too lazy to do myself.

Every 10000km comes around 3 or 4 times a year for me...damn highway km's.
