    I'm running Amsoil signature series, change it every 6 months which is in the 5/6 thousand mile range.

    I know Toyota says 10K on oil changes......I just can't do it! That's alot of miles on oil! I figure 3K has worked well for me over the years and I get Mobil1 when its on sale and occasionally Mobil1 has factory rebates which helps keep the cost down.

    I shoot for every 4-5k miles. I switched from Mobile 1 to Castrol several oil changes ago and am pleased with my decision. Lol

    I've ran Mobil 1, Amsoil and Royal Purple but now exclusively Amsoil but always changed every 5K miles. Any off the shelf oil of the correct viscosity will work fine.

    Figured I would just do it myself abt 40 for oil, filter and drain plug deal instead of 79.99 at the oil change place .. just will get my tires rotated every other oil change?
