I just changed my oil at 900 miles so I will be OK for the trip. Did it myself and this is the easiest car I've changed oil in for years. The oil out of the drain plug comes streight down, not at an angle and filter does the same. Was very easy .
Maybe see some of you on the way down or back. Will be heading back on the 22ed.
