Environment: Change your car oil less often - save lots of oil for the planet

Want to save oil for the planet?  Don't change your car oil so often.  The State of California says that if people delay their oil changes (the current recommendation of 3,000 miles per change is way to low) "millions of gallons of oil annually" would be saved.

The LA Times published a link to a site that tells you how often you should really change your oil -  Click HERE for Cal Recycle.

Los Angeles Times: 

State hopes to break car owners' habit of changing oil too often

"The long-held notion that the oil should be changed every 3,000 miles is so prevalent that California officials have launched a campaign to stop drivers from wasting millions of gallons of oil annually because they have their vehicles serviced too often."
