Oil Change Intervals.

I have noticed that owners in the United States tend to change their engine oil more frequently than here in Europe. Why is this? :dunno:
A typical oil change interval here is 12000 miles or more and the engines don’t seem to suffer. Is there a shorter recommendation in the US? Is the oil not as good? Conditions more severe? Oil company advertising better? ;)

Personally I dont change the oil on my Landy, I just fill up as it leaks out at the bottom!

In South Africa some manufacturers recomend 10 000 km with the local oils, some up to 15 000 kms.

In (small LDV) Diesels we normally change between 5000 and 10 000 kms.
Big trucks go up to 20 000 kms
