Hi everybody, am on a trip around Aust and have been looking for places to get my Nissan Patrol serviced so far I can recomend 2 places Duttons Nissan In Murray bridge and Tyre Power at Carnarvon. Duttons were great and went out of their way to get the oil I use from Adelaide and I still had the car by 2.30pm which is great when you are on a trip and want to get on the road.

Good point,

Hadn't thought too much about servicing on a trip.
I normally only have an oil change to do, and I carry enough engine oil for a complete change anyway just in case, and a spare filter.
I usually just call into a garage some where and get them to do it for me.

Not too environmentally friendly these days to jsut drop the oil on the side fo the road and do it. :-)

But a trip of more than one oil change usually requires more.

Thanks for the recommendation.

The problem arises when you have an extended warranty like I do and it must be serviced by the dealer and your trip is long enough that you need a service. Easily solved in my case, I invited the dealer's operations manager ( a mechanic) along for the trip :-)

Theres more than one way to skin a cat :-)
