Weird little twist in there for sure. Motor looks really clean though by that filter, no debris at all. How many miles on the motor?
How long did that 3000 miles take?
What oil/filter did you use this time?
It seems that users here have likened to taking personal offense to people changing their oil on their own time with their own money they way they want. It's not like one who is changing their oil more often than absolutely necessary is harming anything else but the psyche of internet oil scientists.
While a agree with you for some (and I know you are kind of saying this tongue in cheek) feel that everyone needs to do long intervals.
But there are also those that know for most, a 3000 mile interval is a short interval in most situations. But not all.
I will be doing a change on my F150 in a few weeks, I have just over 3000 miles on this interval, but it has been over 14 months with mostly short trips.
I too have more oil than I will use in about 5 years with my current oil change intervals on all the vehicles in my sig, but no reason to dump good oil.
That said, I will be dumping good oil from my mom's Kia in a few weeks. < 2000 miles, but warranty says every 6 months, and she does nothing but short distance. I should just take that oil and use it in my truck...
