Regardless of that the X290 is manufactured to compete in the commercial vehicle market and they are not going to produce a vehicle with 12 month servicing regardless of mileage. I would still like to see a picture of what you are quoting from.

I found my answer in the service book for a X290 Jan 2015 on ,I think its the same for earlier X290.
My current Peugeot Boxer euro 5 is every 2 years or 30K,it also have the mileage till next oil service in the instrument panel but you still have to get the service done and book stamped according to what the manufacturer says.

Is there a link to the service book or can you copy the page?

MPG and Running Costs

4.8
The Ducato’s fuel economy is a real feather in its cap. The entry-level 110bhp 2.3-litre engine returns 44.1mpg but if you want the star of the efficiency show you’ll need to step up to the 130 and 148bhp models. These return 45.6mpg and CO2 emissions of 164g/km with the aid of Fiat’s Start&Stop technology.

On the latest Ducato a gear-shift indicator, low rolling resistance tyres, low friction oils and a 0.31cx drag coefficient (slippery for a panel van) all help achieve these figures. Even the heavy-duty range-topper does its bit with the 177bhp 3.0-litre managing a creditable 36.7mpg and 203g/km of CO2. At launch, none of the Fiat Ducato engines are compliant with the Euro6 emissions regulations. As there’s no real running costs benefit, Fiat is holding its Euro6 units back until the rules become mandatory in order to keep prices down.

A series of steps have also been taken to enhance the durability of the latest Ducato models. Service intervals are up to a lengthy 30,000 miles thanks in part to upgraded brakes, a new clutch system and tweaked front suspension. Additional body reinforcement and upgraded door hinges are amongst the measures designed to prolong the life of the vehicle.

If it was yearly servicing the above could not apply as cost effective and get 5 stars

Stick to the Manufacturer's schedule, or risk warranty being invalidated (it says that, too).
You've still to evidence that statement in terms of producing this schedule?

Well done!
Servicing must not exceed 2 years.
If the vehicle is mainly driven in town change oil and filter 12 monthly.
So unless it's a milk float conversion 2 yrs!

Don't tell me what to do. I don't need to, I know what it says, and I don't lie, whatever you may think or suggest. I'm quite disgusted by your atttitude actually, not the friendly intro I was expecting.

The Internet is full of misinformation from people who happily say things without being able to present evidence to support it. Readers of this thread or owners of this vehicle will draw their own conclusions. The manual I downloaded thanks to urbanracer is March 2015

I have not said you are lying but without seeing what you have read and how it is worded I can only think it is a misunderstanding

I can see that there could be a certain amount of confusion. The handbook for my Euro 5 has two entries for oil & filter change.
There is: Change engine oil and oil filter (or every 12 months) at every 45000km.
Followed by Change engine oil and oil filter (Multijet version with DPF) (*). The * is a link to a note which says "The engine oil and the filter must be changed when the instrument panel warning light comes on (see “Warning lights and
Messages” chapter) and in any case every 2 years.
If the vehicle is driven mainly in towns, change engine oil and filter every 12 months."

Read it as you wish.
