    Ecoflex varies service interval depending on a number of factors like engine duty cycle, cold starts, how many beans you give it etc. Max is 20K for petrol and 30K for diesel.

    The manual explains it.

    That's what it says in my book, and all the literature. And most Vectra's don't have a DPF.

    30k for oil burners in everything I've read also. Don't think the VXR could be on Eco-flex?

    Probably worth pointing out also that the max time between services on ecoflex is 2 years if you haven't already been prompted by mileage or the service light.
