How often do you change your oil?

Hyundai says every 7,500 miles but that seems extremely long. What do you guys do? Do you have a favorite brand?

7500 is SHORT nowdays it you use synthetic. Improved manufacturing/tolerances and synthetic oil improving lubrication and avoiding oil breakdown make short oil changes overkill. I am surprised at only 7400, most of my recent vehicles used computer translating to 10-12K. I tend to use Mobil 1 or Royal Purple, but most name brands are excellent (Castrol Synthetic, Valvoline etc). I avoid Quaker State, grew up as a mechanic and their old stuff was crap..

I change my oil at 10k using Mobil 1 and a filter rated for that interval or longer.

I used to only use Amsoil and I would change at 20k miles without any issues. Important to use a filter that can handle it though.

Just started using Shell Rotella Gas Truck formula in my F150. They have always produced an awesome diesel truck oil and fleet owners swear by it.

I use Mobil 1 and change every 5,000 with a new filter too.
