Comments that grabbed my attention:
"Change the filter only.... every 5k when using full synthetic oil ( it never wears out)"
"If your oil gets dirty you need to change it. If it is not dirty don't change it.
My father taught me (back in the 60s) when oil breaks down from use it works better.
He ran a corporation that use machine to make plastic bottles.
Oil companies will never tell you this. Think of the money they would lose"
"I never changed my oil when the owner guide suggested and I once let it go for 25000 miles between changes. This was a 2000 Ford Explorer, 6 cyl and I ran with no engine problems until I traded it with 150,000 miles. These Companies just want to make more money by telling you to change your oil more often than you need it! It's all about the money!"
And the oddness continues.
