Oil Changes Don't Need to Occur So Frequently as You'd Expect

You don't have to change your oil as often as you might think. We once needed to get a regular oil change every 3,000 miles or so. Improvements in engines, the quality of oil and vehicles have altered that. These days it's not so uncommon for a newer vehicle to need an oil change just once every 7,500 miles. Some vehicles can even go for 10,000 miles.

You might have learned from mom or dad to get your oil changed every 3,000 miles. That isn't always a good thing these days. It might be a waste of your money. It utilizes more oil. It doesn't even usually help your vehicle. You can consult your owner's manual for the suggested interval for oil changes.
