oil changes
 
how many of you think that your oil need's to be changed every 3- 6 thousand miles ? mabye every 10.and where do you dump the old oil?

I change the oil about 3K and they have waste oil tanks at O'Reilly's stores. Don't pour brake fluid or anti-freeze in them, just engine and gear oil.

Usually after 3k, but that sometimes goes longer.. more like 4 or 5k. Sometimes I do it earlier if I have been hard on the motor like on a moab trip. I usually take it to orieleys too.

I go 4k to 5k on the 80 and take the dregs to O'reilly's as well.

What is an acceptable way to get rid of used brake fluid? I've got several bottles of waste.

4-5k. I have my local quick lube do it. Or when I do it myself, I take it to them to dispose off. I have one of these that I use to transport the used oil.

I think I took mine to the hazardous waste recycler in Boulder.

looks like 3-5k is pretty standard. the o'reillys at 88th and wads will take yhe used oil but their tank is always full, or so they say. i believe walmarts take used oil to , might have to check that out.

I run synthetic and do it once a year. I take the old oil to Walmart. Plenty of tests show you can go longer than a year on the synthetic, but that feels about right to me. Thats about 8-9K miles

3k is a waste of money IMHO. esp at 8 qt's a pop. Most of my stuff is 5-7500 min

5000 miles with Mobil 1 in my Tundra and 2009 Corolla.

3000 miles or every year or two with dino oil in my FJ40 :hill:

O'Reilly, Walmart supercenters, Carquest and Autozone have all taken oil from me in the past.
