    So true. Most often, the manual will state to check your oil level before every use. If you notice any drastic change in discoloration or anything out of the "ordinary" then you may in fact be due for an oil change. This can happen after 20 hours, or after 100. All depends on how much of a load the engine is under, how well the air filter is working, how many starts were cold and so on...
