Yes that’s right, the signature slogan of Jiffy Lube (Every 3,000 miles) is finally going away. This is according to several news reports including USA Today
Who would have guessed? Since the early 90’s most vehicle manufactures have recommended between 5,000 and 7,500 miles as a “normal” service. Some manufactures have even stretched to 10,000 plus miles with oil life monitoring systems.
All those customers that have been told time and time again to change their oil every 3000 miles can now relax knowing that today’s oil is not like your grandfathers oil.
Companies like AMSOIL, the pioneer in synthetic lubrication have been recommending oil changes of up to 25,000 miles since 1970. Synthetic lubricants offer premium protection over even today’s high quality conventional oils.
It seems Jiffy Lube has come up with some sort of maintenance plan curtailed for each individual user, their driving habits and brand of car. It would still seem silly to go for some of this marketing when the true leader in oil changes is still recommending longer service intervals for most customers.
AMSOIL XL Extended Life Synthetic Motor Oils provide better wear control, high- and low-temperature protection and increased fuel economy compared to conventional oils. AMSOIL XL Synthetic Motor Oils provide superior performance for up to 10,000-miles/six months, or longer when recommended in owner’s manuals or indicated by electronic oil life monitoring systems.
