Oil Change

Today i jacked up the old girl and did an oil change with the help of VWHeritage oil change kit of new filter and gaskets. Luckily for me i have the sump with the 21m oil sump drain which combined with the handy oil drain container (pictured) got the job done with the minimum of mess. (Just as well as i was using my friends driveway - thanks Amanda!)

The job was made really easy thanks to the Just Kampers how to video which i followed to the letter.
Just like in the video my old was like a gunky black treacle, but now is a lovely golden colour thanks to 2litres of Morris SAE30 Oil. Will make sure to do it again in another 3,000 miles rather than the 30,000 since the last change by the looks of it.
