RE: [Fwd: Synthetic Oil Change Intervals?]

Personally, I like changing oil more often (app. 3,000 miles), but on
the other hand I've heard that since synthetic oil practically never
breaks down, you can just leave it in and 7,500 miles is certainly not a
very long interval in any case. For longevity's sake (and peace of mind)
I'll stick with my 3,000 mile intervals.

Just my $.02 worth.
