If you're over the age of 30, you most likely remember being told that you have to change your oil every 3,000 miles. Many people still believe this to be the truth, even though many manufacturers have told you otherwise. Even the oil industry will tell you otherwise. With the advancements in synthetic oil, and, the improvement of technology in vehicles, this is typically outdated information. The average for all cars made in about the last 20 years is 5,000 miles. Some cars will even be able to go 15,000 miles before needing an oil change.

Changing your oil less often is much more beneficial in every aspect. You don't interfere with the other parts around the engine as frequently, and, you also save the environment by not dumping oil unnecessarily. Even the most conservative folks agree that oil dumping isn't good for the environment.
