Free Used Motor Oil and Filter Recycling

The 3,000 Mile Myth

You might be changing your motor oil more often than is necessary. Automakers are regularly recommending oil changes at 5,000, 7,500 or even 10,000 miles based on driving conditions.  Changing your oil unnecessarily generates millions of gallons of waste oil every year.  Always check your vehicle's user manual for guidelines on when to change your oil or visit www.checkyournumber.org
