I have a 2013 Nissan Altima with the 2.5 . Currently running 0w20 Mobil ep in it . Car is driven around town on short trips a lot and once every month or so it goes out on a good trip . 10k max miles a year . Also use Mobil filter . Wondering what a good change interval would be on this car? Would 7500 be to much to ask of this oil ? Thanks

I would follow what the manual states. Review your usage and see if it classifies as light or severe duty and adjust your intervals accordingly. I'd stick to the OEM specified viscosity also.

Mobil 1 0w20 is going to be just fine for your Altima. I believe 7500 miles is what the manual says for non severe operating conditions. So if you are under warranty and your driving profile fits the severe service then it is only 3750 miles. Make your mileage decision based upon your usage pattern. And the Mobil 1 oil filter is just fine as well.
