How many miles between oil changes?
Old school was always 3 months or 3000 miles on conventional oils. Now car companies claim 5000 miles in-between changed with the new semi-synthetic oils.
How many miles do you put on your vehicles per oil change and what oil do you use? With oil costs rising as they are, what is a good balance?
On my wife's car we go 5,000 miles on semi-synthetic and when I change the oil, it still looks as good as when I put it in. Can I get more miles out of the oil? I also usually change it by how we use the vehicles. I change my truck oil every 3000 even with semi-synthetic as I pull an enclosed trailer quite a bit.
