NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:

Skip the 3,000 mile oil change (Trent Hamm, February 6, 2012, CS Monitor)

We've all heard the mantra of getting your oil changed every 3,000 miles. It gets repeated to us every time there's an ad for motor oil or oil change services.

That actually might have been true thirty or more years ago, when engines were built very differently than they are today.

However, the reality is that most of today's car models require oil changes every 5,000 miles, and some models require it even less frequently than that.
