oil change interval
I use a vibration hour meter and keep track of how many hours the engine is run, not the miles covered. Better metric.
10,000 miles divided by 50 mph, my best guess of your average road speed, equals 200 hours.
As my average speed is more like 40, oil change will happen at around 6-7000 miles.
Using Castrol Edge 5w-30, (gold bottle) runs great.
