Looks like 2,600 miles per oil change

Iron took a spike going an extra 253 miles since last oil change. However, I did forget to purge two times during this period and had to start the engine on a mix of cold veggie oil and diesel so that could have caused some grinding of iron. Regardless, next oil change will be around 2,600 miles.

You really need to remember to purge correctly.

However I don't think not purging caused the iron spike because the veg oil at start up doesn't affect lubrication. Unless the engine oil is already ruined.

I am curious at what temperature you switch over. I live near you and don't switch until the TDI water temp reads 190ยบ and depending on outside temp wait even longer.
