I use M1 extended 15,000 mile formula in my truck and my G8, but change it around 7500 miles. 98% of my miles are highway though.

I have 94,000 trouble free miles on my F150 and it's had M1 since new other than the standard break-in with Dino.

How many miles are you guys going between oil changes on fully synthetic? About to do my first oil change, and wanna know what kinda life I should get outta it.

Normal daily driver on 35s. 50/50 highway/city.

You can do 7500 miles easily IMO.

I am just about to order RP on the internet. It is not available around me so I will be ordering it with a RP filter as well. Looking forward to my first oil change in a couple weeks. I only had the truck for 2 months so I never needed to do one yet

My oil life indicator in my new '13 ram shows half life left and I have 3500 miles... Do you guys trust those things or would your stick with every 3000 mile oil changes?
