Your last oil change was November?  Holy Crap!  With the mileage I drive to work, I'm getting them about every 11-12 weeks.

Remember I rarely drive my POV (privately owned vehicle). My world is within a 5-mile radius. Kids school (but I am on my way to or from work when I take them to school or pick them up so that's in the work car), parent's house, ballpark, grocery, church, mall, most other shops I go to, and most of my restaurants are alll within 5-miles of my house. Really, about 3 miles. A tank of gas lasts me a month. My car will be 2 years old in 5 weeks. I have 12,000 miles on it.

Wow Tracy, wow. I don't know what else to say. 12,000 miles for 2 years is awesome! A tank of gas lasts a month. I'm speechless.

I live close to the high school. Most days all I do in my car is pick up DD from softball: 3 miles round trip. The baseball field is about two miles from me. Driving 15 miles a week, weekdays, doesn't pack the miles on a car. Summer it will pick up, driving to tournaments.
