quote:DOH! I'm guilty of all three! I constantly look up and down the aisles of Walmart and CT to see if something new pops up. And I've driven all over the GTA looking for 0w30 Castrol in the past. And I've got two cases of oil hidden in my oil shrine so my wife doesn't notice the fact that I'm currently holding onto over 60 quarts of oil!

quote:Just get over it. The 3K oil change is just plain wasteful IMHO . But that's another debate . There are some on this board that change frequently just to get an oil analysis (like Patman ) I am no longer curious-I'm just plan lazy-7-8 K miles works for me.

My friends tell me I have an "oil fettish" and they make fun of me all the time now. Synthetic.....Dinop....Supertech......Supersyn....I wanna try this other oil......I can't sleep!!

To all other oil-aholics: I will not be changing the 15w50 I just changed my Saturn to at 3K. It will have to wait until 6K or until it gets too deep into winter. I guess there is hope for me yet!
