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

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