Here's an example...
Last year I waited until 15k do to my first oil change.. guess what happeed.. fuel pump went the first (of 4 times) right at 15k.. i found myself another 18 times at the dealer after that. 5 times was for the vanos system getting messed up
one of my friends was fully modded up, did oil changes 4-5k miles, beat the holy hell outa his car until 50,000+ and guess what.. he was at dealership maybe 2-3 times..
this doesn't got for everyone, but it MAKES you wonder.
What do bad fuel pumps have to do with your oil?
