2 oil changes, half a transmission oil change, one diesel filter, one air
filter... Plus as many of the minor jobs as you care to do regularly.


depends where you go for the bits and the oils more'n anything else.

castrol, for example, will probably cost you about 14quid per change.

I've just noticed some rather suitable-looking oil in the local agricultural
merchants, sold as tractor oil but meets the required specs, and costs about
a quid a litre.

Been using Agricastrol for years - If it's good enough for 18 hours non stop
on a Combine a few hours on a motorway or up the high street is nowt

With best regards, Not so Clever Trevor.

I run a '97 300 Tdi between 15 and 20,000 miles a year and do my own
servicing, which costs, for all filters, oils, greases roughly about 120
per year.

On average I change engine oil, air filter, oil filter and diesel filter
three times, gearbox oil, diff oil and transfer box oil once a year. Brake,
Power steering and Clutch fluids are changed every two years. Anything else
is on an ad-hoc basis. For instance if we have a month where we do a couple
of trials or 'playdays' and get _really_ dirty and muddy I might do an extra
engine, diff and/or gearbox oil change etc. Play it by ear depending upon
what work the vehicle does. If all we do is drive around then I run to
normal service intervals or between 5 and 6k. If, like summer time, we tow
the caravan every weekend and 'play' a bit I up the service intervals to 3k
intervals.

I guess I probably do more services than someone who uses their Disco purely
on-road as a car and probably less than someone who uses their Disco mostly
off-road.
