Why The 3,000 Mile Oil Change Routine is a Thing of the Past

For many years the standard for vehicle owners has been to get the oil changed every 3,000 miles. Many drivers out there still think this is the right way to do it, but in recent years, the last twenty or so, engine and oil production have changed vastly. Many manufacturers today are recommending that oil changes occur every 7,500 miles or even more, depending on how you operate your vehicle.

With both parts as well as oil is designed to last longer, changing out your oil every 3,000 miles is actually not doing your vehicle's engine any favors. Really, by doing this, you are throwing away money as well as good oil and have we really thought about where that oil goes? Your driving habits are what will have the largest impact on when you need to change your oil, and 7,500 miles can see a bit scary after the 3,000-mile habit so make sure you check your oil every month to ensure it is still healthy.
