How Often Does everybody Change their oil?

I just wanted to see how often you guys change your oil, I changed my oil religiously at every 3000 miles and got the tires rotated on my old car, any difference with the Alti? Sorry about the noob question.

You change the filter every 2500? With synthetic? I use mobil 1 every 5000 too, but I change the filter every 10000m.

You chage the filter every few miles?

I do M1 and do the oil every 10-12 thousand miles...filter every 4-6.

Longer change intervals are the biggest reason to switch to synthetic...that and improved mileage.

I change my oil filter every ten thousand miles, not every few. I don't understand your post.

You people and your crazy short changing intervals, especially those who use a synthetic.

I get the Mobile 1 5W-30 oil and OEM filter every 6000 miles or so.
