I am wondering whether to change the oil and filter using fully synthetic oil which I am told lasts very much longer - will this last a few years if I only do say 3K per year ? What oil do you recommend and is it a simple enough job for a novice like myself to do ? I don't have a handbook but someone says SAE 10W/30 should be used ? Anyone know what filter I have to ask for ?
Is gearbox/back axle oil easy to change ?
Finally with a low expected mileage would I get away with a garage service every two years ?
