Cheap oil = cheap results. Old Chinese man say, "You get what you pay for".

The 3,000 mile drain pain is a throwback to the 1960's, over 50 years ago now. Technology does advance. Even the greedy Big Oil industry doesn't recommend 3,000 mile drain pain intervals anymore. It's a waste of money and resources. Changing oil too often can also damage an engine, causing premature wear.
