Many drivers are still asking the question, “How many miles can you go on an oil change?” The answer continues to be a source of controversy in the automotive industry. The standard answer used to be every three months or 3,000 miles. Even though some mechanics still recommend the 3,000-mile interval, this advice is now as outdated as car cassette players and road atlases in your glove box. With today’s modern engines and synthetic oils, some cars can go for many more miles, possibly as many as 10,000.

According to Ford Motor Company, drivers with typical driving habits with vehicles 2008 and newer should change the oil every 7,500 miles or six months, or whichever comes first. Drivers with vehicles 2007 and older should change the oil every 5,000 miles or six months, or whichever comes first. Drivers with less typical driving habits (i.e.; frequent off-road driving, towing or carrying heavy loads, excessive idling or driving at low speeds for long distances) with vehicles 2008 and newer should change the oil every 5,000 miles or six months, and every 3,000 miles or three months for cars 2007 and older.

Wondering how many miles can you go on an oil change? Ask your mechanic at Rum River Automotive and find out more about their oil change coupons.
