I suspect that comma is supposed to be a decimal point.

12000 km / 1.609 km/mi = 7458 mi or about 7500 mi.

Which oil is better? Motorcraft Full Synthetic, Mobil 1 Full Synthetic or other brand? Should I stay OEM or there are better ones aftermarket, full synthetic ones?

Personally, I use Mobil1 0W20. Its full synthetic, reasonably priced, and available just about anywhere in case I need to top off the oil when out of town.

Are you folks draining/filling your transmission fluid as well? Not sure if we all have drain plugs, but my 07 does.
