I do own a SAAB 9-5. synthetic oil "should" last a long time - which is one reason they charge so much for it..... i have a V6 diesel - it gets changed on the recommended intervals (12k miles) - but that twice a year for me. The petrol engines here (UK) have a longer recommended interval. > > Rich > -- Regards stephen_hopenospamorld.com - replace xyz with ntl
