I had a 306 with a 2.0Hdi and only did it once a year but then only did 8k annually. I rembered the oil actually stayed clean for a while afterwards as well.
It's not too "sludgey" an engine. I don't know what the recomend oil is for your. I don't know if the 307 2.0HDi has a DPF or not - it makes a difference to the oil. I wouldn't go by your handbook as the oil recomendations change - as indeed they have for the 1.6HDi lumps.

Can't remember what the interval is but once a year at least if mileage allows.

I'm sure someone more qualified will come along in a minute and shoot me down and tell me I'm talking doggy poos

Ref the Ka - petrol engines the oil doesn't get as dirty as quickly.

Depends on your driving pattern and the oil you use.

I've always gone with 6 months or 6000 miles.

People claim that oil can last much longer these days and I'm wasting my money. Maybe I am and its a big placebo but I've never had any engine problems, my MPG is tremendous and the car runs smooth and quiet, so its worth it just for my peace of mind.

I did some research on the 1.6 110 engine that's in the 307, 407 and Ford Focus. All three have different recommended service intervals. The one with the longest interval is the 407, and that one seems to suffer most from turbo failures. Co-incidence?

Some claim flushes are too harsh and can damage seals, so I've never bothered.

Im of the same mind with flush's and am a member of other forums who never use them. If you must flush then I use standard oil and flush it through if I don't know the history of the car and then change the filter and fill with decent semi oil although I do use fully syn on the fto as it gets run a lot higher revs than the merc.

I change every 6k. My old xantia hdi90 went to the moon and back with regular changes.

I definitely wouldnt put engine flush through a turbo car, disturbing sludge will probably send it through the turbo, asking for trouble doing that. Can also damage turbo seals if its getting a bit worn.

Best way to flush is to put cheap oil in, run the engine for half an hr then drop it back out, refill with the good stuff. I only do this after major work or when i buy a car, no need to do it often.

good advice there

my car seems to have been looked after and the oil changed often enough

i only asked as my gf does alot more stop start then me and her oils clean after a year. the service history on her car was a little hazzy as well

my car doesnt have a dpf. does anyone know what the service interval actually is

i have done just over 4000 miles in 6 months since the last change
