    our Oil burner Innova, lagi sinasabi ng Service advisor that we need to decarbon the car every 5k or 10k daw kasi kung hinde mag low power daw yun makina at masisira yun turbo.

    it doesnt comes cheap ha. nasa 3500 ata or 4500 if i remember it correctly. we had did it on 20k then after that wala na. lagi sinasabi ng SA na need daw de carbon to clean the engine daw. when we do the decarbon at 20k mark mabaho pa din naman amoy ng tambutso.... haha

    my oil burner has over 130K km on the odometer.
    i haven't yet availed of any non-basic maneuver or product that the casa offered.
    it runs fine, still.

    the owner's manual lists down the essentials.
    if it ain't in that list, respectfully decline the product or procedure. "next time na lang. wala sa budget, e." no one can argue with that.

    diesel?
    i have them do only the oil change and oil filter change.
    mineral oil lang, not synthetic.
    i have oil change every 5000 km, naman kasi.
    my bill doesn't go beyond 5000 kesos.

    and when the warranty ran out, sa gas station nako nagpapa-change oil. 2500 kesos lang. no waiting pa. everything finished in less than an hour.
    Yes mine is diesel also. Mas ok ba na mineral nalang na every 5km over full synthetic na every 10Km (once a year)?

    4hrs rin waiting time to get car serviced as casa. 730am-1130am.

    Read the owner's manual. Them holduppers a.k.a. service advisors exploit those who do not read the preventive maintenance schedule written in the good book

    FS versus mineral.
    10,000 km interval vs. 5000 km interval.
    $$$ versus $$.
    do the math, boys.
    don't forget to put a price tag on "inconvenience".

    ang gusto ko sa gas station oil change,
    you can watch them remove the old, and install the new.

    The service advisor gets commission for every optional service they do.

    If i was the service advisor, i'd tell all my customers they need an decarb every time they go to thr casa
