And if you use self-serve, how often do you check your oil?

There probably is a full service station somewhere but I don't know where it is (other than for disabled customers).

I'm not aware of any full service stations in this area so I use self-service. I have no set schedule for checking my oil but it probably averages once a month.

Self serve. I change oil every 5K miles. I don't check it.

Living in New Jersey I have no choice, It is the only state east of the Mississippi River that doesn't allow for self service.
