Since it is only a sunny summer ride I change it in the fall myself. Trying to keep it about 3000 miles a year, also gives me time to clean under car.

I change my oil every 10,000 miles or 2 years. When new in 2006, I ran for 800 miles and then I blended the 12.5w40 QuantumBlue and changed it in July 2006. Ran 6200 miles and changed it 9-23-2008. Been running the oil since then. Will probably change it again 9/10.

Thanks

You sure about that mobil one? Dealer price on the filter is over $10, delaer price on the oil is I think over $8, that would mean the labor is free. Most folks report synthetic changes being in the $90 dollar range.


Oh, and I do change my own, following the old concept that nobody, and I mean nobody, cares about my stuff like I do


036? 3K a year? Wow, I'm at 75K on my car, bought in Aug 06.
