    was up everyone.


    So I have 180 miles left for my next oil change. I am planning to take a trip up north (Arcata, CA) to pick up my sister and possibly do some camping. The trip is about 1340miles round trip. Now, the question is, should I do my oil change before I go, or when I come back?


    thanks.

    i would go ahead and change it man. Who knows you might end up driving more miles and under rougher circumstances than expected. I usally change mine early if i know i'll be out of town or something like that

    You know what, I would just change it. I put around 100 miles a day on so being where you are at with 180 left ain't no biggie.
