Put the 3,000-Mile Oil Myth to Rest

The 3,000-mile myth has no merit in today's society due to newer cars being more efficient when it comes to how they use oil. Oil breaks down in harsh environments, such as the ones inside an engine where it is bombarded by high temperatures. However, with the advancements that have been made in engine technology as well as with the innovations that have come about in oil composition, a late-model vehicle now has the potential to go several thousands of miles more than you may have thought.

You may have been going and getting your oil changed regularly every 3,000 miles because that is what your parents did or it may have been what you were told by a friend that it was the right thing to do. The best thing for you to do is to come see us at Halladay Nissan here in Cheyenne or look in your owner's manual.
