I'm curious: How many miles do you normally get out of an oil change if you're someone who listens to the DIC. I listen to my DIC for oil changes, and I regularly get 10,000+ miles using regular engine oil, not synthetic. I've gotten as high as 13,000 miles in the past. Is this normal?? I don't really mind myself, the more time between oil changes the less I spend on them.
But is that many miles on an oil change hard on the engine? I don't want to cause any permanent damage? What do you usually get yourself??
I know I've heard you're supposed to change your oil at least once a year, but mine never lasts that long anyway because of the amount of driving I do.
