Default How long can I go without fresh oil?

I had an oil change when I had 142Know I have 150K. I have been addding oil only because times have been rough on me. But will be doing it soon. I do use synthetic oil.

I change mine every 2 1/2 to 3 months. But I know someone who drove his car for about 10 months and never changed the oil. It still seems fine though. :o

If your stock and don't drive aggressive you can go for 5k miles easy, but if I go over 3000 I freak out.
