I was wondering how long you guys go between oil changes. I sometimes wonder if I an being anal about my oil changes or not. I would like to hear how you often you guys are changing it both with synthetic and dino oils.

I change the oil and filter every 500 miles and use Mobil MX4T synthetic. Check the valves every other change.

About every 300-400 miles, Honda HP4 without moly w/ new filter each time. Also check valves every other oil change. Better to anal than broken down. :)

I change the oil every 200-300 miles. I check the valves around 500.
