Oil Change

475 Miles was close enough to 500 so I changed the oil to Valvoline VR-1 20W50. Took a bit longer than expected (abut 4 hours longer!) as the filter crushed when I put the pliers on.... oops!. Next time I'll do it on a car lift down my local garage..... I've had enough of grubbing round on the floor under the car!

Having collected the old oil I poured it out into a large tray and had a good look at it for anything untoward..... not sure what I was looking for but could find nothing out of the ordinary!
