Are You Changing Your Motor Oil Too Often?

flickr user: gumuz

For years we’ve been trained to head to the lube shop every 3,000 miles or three months, but according to a recent article from the Los Angeles Times we may be wasting our money.

According to the article, improvement in oils and engines have lengthened oil change intervals from the traditional 3,000 miles to 7,500 and 10,000 miles depending on the make and model of the vehicle. That means cars owners could be spending way more money on engine oil annually than they should.

The state of California has made motor oil conservation a high priority. State officials have had an ongoing campaign educating citizens on the durability of new engine and motor oil technology, and have been imploring them to wait a little longer between oil changes. California has created a website,, that allows users to look up the manufacturer’s suggested mileage interval between oil changes.

Check out the website and see if you’re spending too much money on motor oil.
