Rev your engines, today I am going to dispel the

myth

of 20,000

mile

oil

changes

, it has now come to my attention that quite a few people who claim to be experts have made videos about these 20,000

mile

Mobil 1 oil

changes

and they say it was a good idea but they were all sponsored videos now my video here was only sponsored by the

truth

, I'm going to tell you the

truth

about 20,000 mile oil changes and the truth is this, engine oil gets dirty while driving, The Carbon builds up in it, water gets in, all kinds of impurities eventually ruin the oil and it doesn't lubricate properly, that's why you have to change your car's oil, so that your engine doesn't have too much friction. and then burn out the engines, it costs a lot of money, now I normally advise people that if they use full synthetic oil, they can change the oil every seven to ten thousand miles and if they use regular non-synthetic oil, I advise them to change it every five to ten thousand miles. seven thousand miles, now this new mobile 1 oil says it can be changed once a year or every twenty thousand miles, but they're actually talking about a technicality here, they're talking about twenty thousand miles of highway almost exclusively.
