      Hi Kasun,

      The frequency of changing engine oil depends upon several factors like no. of KMs driven and driving conditions. If you run it mainly on city roads which are decent, you can probably change your engine oil at around 6,000 – 7,000 Kms. However, if you use syntheic oil, it could be stretched to around 8,500 – 9,000 KMs.
