Is 12000 Miles Too Far For An Oil Change

22 June 2012 - 10:20 AM

I know the service interval for the fiesta zetec diesel is 12500 miles but to me it just seems too long to leave and I feel more comfortable at changing the engine oil at 6000 miles. Right now I'm on the south coast of Spain and my car has done 5000 miles from new, the drive back to England is 2000 miles so wil have done at least 7000 before I'm back home. Is it really ok to leave the oil until its done the full 12500 before change or is this figure just to make the servicing costs seem more affordable in order to help sell the car.

Any advice from anyone with mechanical knowledge would be appreciated, rather than a text book answer.

Thanks :)
