    after every race. which is way more often than any scheduled maintenance. i put around 3000 miles a year on the car and change the oil after every rally or drag session. better safe than sorry.

    About every 3 days or so. My rear main seal is bad so I need a quart of oil every 3-4 days.

    I check mine every time I fill up or wash my car. It has never needed a top up yet.

    wait wait wait... these cars use oil??? is that what that big blue plume of smoke is that comes out the side of my car everytime i start it? i guess that would make sense. i should go add a quart and a half to my car right now... but its cold and the oil light goes off so its good for now...

    I try to check it each time I fill up, doesn't always happen though. However, since my 18 Y/O Son threw a rod in his 02 GT, he will be checking the oil every couple of days! That or he will find my boot up his ass! (can you tell I'm the one that paid for the engine and did swap).

    It wasnt a poll option but, every time I fill it up. Its just another diagnostic tool like checking your guages to me. Better to see something coming than wait for it to happen.

    My 7a surprisingly doesnt burn or leak any oil, so I rarely check it. I only check the condition of the oil when I think its close to time for a change.
