Previous years when we were driving long distances to work and racking up 29k on each of two vehicles, it was about 50 quarts/year. Now with once per year changes for 3 vehicles, it's 17 quarts a year.

I have really liked Pennzoil HM in my Equinox. Engine runs nicer than it has with M1HM and Maxlife. Maxlife works great in my Malibu. Long story short is try some and see what works best for your car and stick with it.

Whenever I go to recycle oil at the local stores, I get hassled if I have more than 5gals, and if any of it smells "weird".. I'm surprised that some are actually getting benefits from recycling their used stock!
