How often do you change your oil?

This is my first SRT and I am just curious how often you guys have been getting your oil changes? I have 1700 miles on mine now and was wondering if I should wait the 3000 miles or if you guys do soon than that.

Thanks guys

Re: How often do you change your oil?

As often as I change my underwear, whenever it tells me to. No but really on the evic screen in the center it pops up "Oil Change Due" about 500 miles before it should be performed. It varies depending on driving conditions and what not.

Search out Chevyboy's recent posts. He talks about break in and what to to after. It is a good theory.

Re: How often do you change your oil?

First one between 500 and 1000 miles. Then every 6-7,000 miles. Otherwise don't use synthetic because you're wasting your money.

I've seen multiple oil analyses on high horsepower cars of other forums I have been on over the years that have shown synthetics still being good even at 7,000 miles.
