Prolly true in a Cruiser. I figure on account of the 22R only circulates 4.5 quarts with the medium sized Denso filter and 3K is easy to remember since I change on the '3's, e.g 243K, 246K, 249K, so technically every 3rd change is 4K miles. It ain't rocket surgery. I also just use plain old Castrol GTX 10W30 that I buy in bulk when it's on sale (e.g. I'm technically investing in oil futures at the same time). The only downside to changing too often is the cost.
