Ever since I’ve been driving a car I’ve always heard you should change your oil every 3,000 miles. But now some people say that’s a myth. Both things are kind of true.
The 3,000 mile thing used to be the case with older model cars. But now that technology has improved and cars are much newer most new cars can go about 7500 miles before needing to change the oil. Certain manufacturers like Ford, Volkswagen, Porsche, and certain Toyota engines are built for for even longer… about 10,000 miles. And BMW engines can actually run on the same oil for 15,000 miles!
