​Q: How often should motorists change their car’s oil?


A: It depends on the car’s make, model and year, as well as driving conditions. Many of today’s automakers recommend oil changes at 5,000, 7,000 or even 10,000 miles. Drivers should check the automaker’s recommendation by reviewing the car’s user manual.

Q:Will changing the oil less frequently harm a car’s engine?


A: Advances in motor vehicles and oil make it possible to go much longer between oil changes without harming a car’s engine. However, motorists should follow car maker recommendations for oil change frequency based on driving conditions.

Q: How does going longer between oil changes affect a car’s warranty?


A: Following the car maker’s guidelines for oil change frequency will not affect a vehicle’s warranty.


Q: How do driving conditions affect the distance motorists can go between oil changes?


A: Automaker oil change recommendations differ depending upon driving conditions, as well as car make, model and year. According to car manufacturers, drivers considered “severe” should change their oil more frequently or at shorter mileage intervals than drivers considered “normal.” Severe drivers are those that drive in one of the following conditions in a typical week:

Extensive idling or in stop-and-go traffic.

  • Cold weather, less than 10 degrees.
  • Extreme heat, more than 90 degrees.
  • Extreme humidity.
  • Repeated short-distance trips of less than five miles.
  • Towing a trailer or hauling heavy materials.



Q: How can the 3000 Mile Myth help me?

A: Less is more! You’ll have more money in your pocketbook by changing your oil less often!
Less frequent oil changes means more oil saved as one of our precious environmental resources.
