Seriously, I also don't know where the mix up occur... whether the SA heard me wrongly and wrote wrongly, or the technician cannot read the SA's handwriting... Disappointing la... Can the semi syn oil really take me through the next 10,000km smoothly?

nope, best you change it at 15K mileage.

 

although, you may insist, but not advisable !

do i have to service my car every 6 months though i drive them only sparingly? i used to drag them until 9 months before going for the service,.. even then,,, the mileage has yet to reach 5km.. but i checked that the engine oil was turning dark already.. so thats why i went for the service..

dont do this to harm your car !!

 

observe the maximum allowable time frame to change your engine oil, to prevent sludge built up and ruin your engine.

 

if your car is a low-mileage car, oil change interval is 5K mileage, or maximum 6 month, whichever comes first, if you are using mineral or semi oil; likewise, 10K mileage or 6 months, whichever comes first, if you are using full synthetic lube.
