I have a 2007 Chevy Duramax. I have used Amsoil in it since I first got it. I am currently rolling at 100,000 miles with no noticable loss of performance. I would love to have my oil analyzed before I change it again. I have been running this current oil with around 10,000 miles, and will be changing it in another 5,000 mile. I’ve been told the product can go longer intervals, but I use my own safety factor. Don’t misunderstand me and think I don’t trust the product, I just was raised under the old 3,000 mile an oil change theory.

You’re not the first, nor will you be the last who chooses to shorten their drain intervals a bit. There’s nothing wrong with leaving yourself a little cushion. Besides, you never know when a small problem in the engine might arise (even one that ISN’T lube related), which might affect the longevity of the oil, so cutting our drain intervals a bit short is never a bad plan, even if it does make it a bit less economical.

You can get an oil analysis kit from AMSOIL or from another lab like Blackstone to get your oil tested and see how it’s doing. It’s good to this every few oil changes anyway, just to check for other potential engine problems, which can often be detected through changes in your oil.

If you don’t mind my asking, how long does it take you to put 15K on the oil? The oil is guaranteed for 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. Many people hit the one year mark before they hit 25K, so they end up changing out on shorter intervals anyway, just to stay within AMSOIL’s warranty requirements.
