Not long ago we spoke about a campaign by the California Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB) that recommended to verify how often motor oil had to be changed. General Motors has joined the campaign and will support CIWMB in informing motorists that millions vehicles can be driven much longer than the old standard of 3,000 miles between changes. Driver farther, save oil.

GM also took the chance to speak about its Oil Life System, which checks the quality of motor oil for the driver, informing about its "life." The system uses an algorithm based on key engine functions to determine when oil should be changed. This usually extends oil change intervals to 6,000 miles (although it depends on vehicle usage). According to GM, this would save more than eight million gallons of motor oil per year in California alone.
