How Often Should You Really Change Your Oil?

Surely every driver has been told by a family member, friend or service shop that the oil in their vehicle needs to be changed at least every 3000 miles, but how true is this? The reality is most personal vehicles under normal driving conditions will never need to have the oil changed this often. Your owner’s manual will give you specific intervals based on driving conditions on when your oil should be changed. Some vehicles will also have an indicator that will tell you when the oil change is due.

Most cars will need an oil change between 5,000-10,000 miles. Car engines in recent years are much more advanced and efficient and don't break down the oil as fast. Oils are also more advanced with additives that help them protect and last longer.
