Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

Did my first at 8,000km and next will be when the EVIC says so.
My other car's manual says every 20,000 ml or 2 years !!!

Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

A new article akin to the Edmunds article in yesterday's L.A. Times...

State hopes to break car owners' habit of changing oil too often

"California launches a campaign against the widespread notion that oil changes are needed every 3,000 miles. Officials say the practice wastes millions of gallons of oil a year...."

20/20 did a story on this back in the mid 90's. With numerous tests they determined 7,500 miles on any oil with the SAE starburst was the sweet spot. I have been following that logic since then and have had no engine problems what so ever.

Most people think it is cheap insurance. They fail to realize they are wasting oil and driving prices up and supplies down.

Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

Weird, my dealer told me to come in and change my oil after 2,500 KM!!!

That would be my first oil change for break in. Interesting read though, thanks!
