How often do you change your oil?

I have a 05 DCSB 4.0 V6 and I change my oil every 3,000 miles with mobile 1 full synthetic. I've been told I could wait 5-7000 miles. How often do you change it and what do you use?

Mobile 1 full synthetic. 6000 change filter and top off. 12000 full oil change and repeat. mostly road miles except during deer season. I've got 9000 on my oil now and it looks like I have 2000. Keep it clean and it will last.

I'd say the guy with 350k miles has somewhat of a say-so in this matter.

Varies upon many things ultimately.

I figure with my driving and upgrades, sooner is better for me.

Ymmv literally..... I'd like to have a 300ish HP grocery getter last me a long time.

Every 3,000 religiously. Doesn't cost much and only takes 20min.

As a result, my engine looked new inside when I pulled the valve covers at 140,XXX

Ya know what, so did my girls 99 Mitsubishi mirage.... Did a timing belt and a few other things, the damn thing looked like new. We change that oil every 3k with Dino 5w30 and a filter anything besides fram.
At 170ish K, it looked spotless..... My buddy was impressed.... I'll see if we got pics.
