I use mobil one in all my vehicles. They get oil change every 5 thousand miles regardless of time. Ive had some take over three years to make 5 thousand and it doesn't hurt a thing. Time doesn't wear a engine but miles do. Oil does not get old. On my tractors and welders and power plants we go 100 hours on the hour meters for oil change. Again it is 100 hours weather it takes 1month or 5 years.

Oil change based on months rather than miles?

I don't drive my JK very much, maybe 15 miles per day. It is used as a daily driver, to and from work with some mileage on the weekend. At this rate, I may put around 5,500 miles/year on the Jeep. The manual says to change the oil every six months or 8,000 miles, but should I change my oil at 3 months or 6 months regardless of the mileage?
