    These are the drain intervals i have measured after testing viscosity+colour of oil with time..AHL drain interval is recommended by anteena dealers,i have also observed the viscosity of this oil drops sharply after 1k interval..Havoline 20w50 is good till 1300,....ANd Liqui Moly drain interval is company recommended.

    as far as i know, change in oil color is not a good indicator of it's state. do some research on the internet, and you will also find something on that. and viscosity of the oil doesn't change that easily.

    i would second your comment regarding the drain interval of havoline .. as opposed to 800 recomended by hathora mechanics .. i have used it alot and always found it effective till 1200 km and at certain times i have used it for 2k kms..

    but in cases of emergency i have frequently used it till 1500-1600 km .. though there was a decrease in its effectiveness after 1200 but that decrease was more drastic after 14-1500 kms ..


    and i have always been changing oil at 1200 kms .. nowadays i am using castrol 20w50 and its much better then havoline.. though initialy when i switched from havoline to castrol it was behaivng worst in clutch issues .. but after one or two drains now its working as it should be ..

    A change in oil colour indicates that the oil is doing its job of cleaning grime and dust in the engine compartment..Also dirtier the oil the more close it is to draining..I also have viscometer in my laboratory thus i measured their respective viscosities with time.

    Let us know of your concern then we might be able to answer you better.

    Either you are asking just for knowledge or do you want to use an oil with longer drain interval?
