3,365 miles


California Adventure Rally, Cerro Gordo, CA


BMW of San Francisco

Oil change

Removed "Syntec" synthetic oil, replaced with BMW 10W40 engine oil. The bike had been using excess oil, I thought: about a quart every thousand miles. I was told that, until the rings properly seat, this oil consumption is not unusual.

Having misunderstood the mechanic's recommendation, I had mistakenly topped off the engine with about two quarts of "Syntec" 20w50.

1 ea. Oil Filter #11-42-7-673-541 $10.13
1 ea. Crush washer $0.40
4 qt. BMW 10W40 engine oil (4 @ $3.50) $14.00

Labor: $49.00
Waste: $2.00
Tax: $2.09

Total: $77.62
