Why the 3,000 Mile Oil Change Commandment is No Longer True

Oil chemistry and dynamic engine technology have made a significant evolution in the automotive industry in the recent years. Driven by the obsolete 3,000-mile oil change principle, drivers are unnecessarily forced to spend huge amounts of money to change oil and spilling an ocean of old oil waste to the environment.

A good number of automakers today design vehicle which calls for oil change after 7,500 or 10,000 miles and the interval can as well go as high as 15,000 miles in other cars. Today's oil takes longer intervals to get changed because:

  • Its made with powerful ability to protect engines from wear and heat and still guarantee good fuel economy accompanied by low emissions.
  • Most automakers prefer harnessing synthetic oil.
  • Modern engines are built with tighter tolerances.
  • Introduction of dashboard oil life monitoring systems which alert the driver that oil needs to be changed depending on the manner and under conditions the car gets driven in.
