"Check Your Number" is a new public service campaign that encourages people to look up the recommended oil change interval for their cars instead of defaulting to the traditional standard of every 3,000 miles.
With today's new technologies, car makers confirm that many automobiles can now maintain top performance with increased mileage between oil changes. So it makes economic and environmental sense to "check your number" and be sure you are not changing your oil too often, creating unnecessary waste of money and resources.
Check your owners’ manual to find the recommended interval, or simply click on www.CheckYourNumber.org. This website includes the recommended mileage interval for changing the oil on most vehicles made from 2000-2012.
