And my new Subaru was at 7500 miles.

But new cars are not MGs, and oil formulations change.

The engine I pulled out of dad's old car is in fine shape, nary a  
problem with it.  IIRC, we changed the oil once at 1000 miles, again  
at 3000, and then every 3000 beyond that.  We didn't have to deal with  
SM rated oil then.

When I rebuild mine, I'll do exactly as the article says, because it's  
only a bit of money and time.  There is no harm in changing the oil  
too soon and nebulous, but potentially great harm in waiting too long.

What's $30 compared to the cost of a cam?
